If you’re serious about your cycling habits or are just generally curious about the speed at which you pedal during your rides, this is a simple little app which can you help calculate your cadence.
Openrider – GPS Cycling Riding
This is a great little app for checking your maps during a ride as the GPS tracks your route, it also has a speedometer to tell you how fast you’re riding, tracks and logs the distance and duration as well as tells you how many calories you burned. Once rides are finished you can check stats in the history and share your data with friends through Facebook and Twitter.
Ride with GPS – Bike Computer
Ride with GPS gives you a fairly detailed set of data about your rides, from GPS powered route tracking and logging to tracking your calories burned as well as distance and duration. After rides are over it compiles everything into a graph. It also supports a range of different Bluetooth enabled Cycling and fitness related devices like heart rate monitors, cadence calculators etc and will work with them.
Runtastic Road Bike Tracker
This is a pretty comprehensive app which tracks and pulls in tons of different data about your rides, and it’s all wrapped up in a nice material design style user interface. You can use it with the GPS to track your distance, duration, calories burned, elevation, speed, and more. You can also use it to search for tons of existing bike routes or track and map your own as you ride. Everything gets shown to you on the map built on the Google Maps interface, with colored traces to highlight your path so you know where you rode.
Google Fit is your comprehensive fitness app which holds all your data. It holds compatibility and support for various other fitness related apps, so you can use specific apps to track your data like calories, steps, ride distance and more, and then have it all fed into Google Fit to keep it in one place for easy viewing.
Map My Ride GPS Cycling
Map My Ride is another app for tracking all kinds of various cycling related data, like distance, speed, and duration, while also mapping out your rides using GPS. It’ll also track and record a wide range of other workouts like walking or working out at the gym, and it has a decent material design style interface.
This is Google’s own fitness tracker app for cycling, although it also tracks data for walking and running as well. It’ll pair with the GPS to map your routes and you can view the live data while the recording is happening during your exercises. Besides tracking and recording your paths, it’ll also track your distance, speed, and elevation, and you can share your data via social networks.
GPS Cycling Ride Bike
This app is a little more simple than some of the others, but it’s elegantly designed with a material design style UI and tracks your cycling sessions with a handful of different stats like speed, time, and distance. In future updates, users can also expect to see more personalization worked in, as well as options for viewing previously saved cycling data in a web portal. If you want a simple cycling data tracker with just the basic useful features that looks great, this is an app worth trying.
Strava is one of the best apps out there for tracking your cycling data, although it will also track your runs too so you can use it for both. After it tracks your routes with GPS you can go back and follow those routes on later rides, or search for other routes around your local area or surrounding areas to try something new. There’s also built-in community-based content like leaderboards, social interaction by following other Strava users, and it has Android Wear support so you can start tracking your rides from your wrist.
Topping off this list is Endomondo, which is quite the excellent app for tracking your rides, although it will also track almost any distance-based sport. On rides or during any other activity you get audio feedback regularly, which can serve as motivation or just to keep up on data without looking at your phone. The app supports a handful of different heart rate monitors, and any activities that aren’t automatically tracked can be entered in manually, like weight exercises for example. There’s also a good amount of social interaction so you can share data and keep motivated with other Endomondo users, and you can set your own personal goals and join monthly workout challenges with rewards. You’ll also notice that the app has been completely redesigned with a fresh, modern material design style interface. The app is free, but there is a list of Pro specific features.
