Best Bike Apps: Top cycling apps to download

Whether you're a seasoned pro or just off your stabilizers, we've got the best cycling apps to take your biking to the next level.

Remember last year when Mr Bradley Wiggins tore up the Tour De France and then he walked away with Olympic gold? For many of us, seeing the successful British Olympian in action was all the convincing we needed to let our sideburns grow freely and get on our bikes.

But if you've waited for that big ball of fire up in the sky to show up before hitting the road on one of the best bikes to buy, here's the cycling apps to convince you to keep on riding. 

 

1. Strava Cycling

The sleek looking GPS app will let you record all your times, challenge friends, and hook up heart rate sensors for even more comprehensive stats. If you go premium (From £3.99 a month), you'll be able to see how hard you are pedaling and gloat about your position on the leaderboard.

2. London Cycle

A free accompaniment to the Barclays Cycle Hire in London, this intuitive app helps find “Boris Bikes” around the capital. Colour coded dots overlaid on the map indicate availability in specific locations, while a rental timer makes you aware of any upcoming price increases. Updating features requires internet connection, naturally.
