With all this amazing weather we’re having at the moment, now is the perfect time to get on your bike and spend your weekends exploring the amazing countryside Englandshire has to offer (if you’re not doing so already that is). With the help of a few other keen cyclists, I’ve compiled this list of handy websites & apps that any keen cyclist needs to know about. If there are any more that you think we should know about, please feel free to drop us a line.
It doesn’t matter how you like to stay on top of your cycling news, we’ve got all the best resources right here:
Mapping & Routes
If you’re a real cycling nerd, you’re going to want to keep track of where you’re riding and how fast you were shooting down that hill. These sites will help you do that. Some of them even have apps that’ll do it for you via your fancy iPhone. Others will be able to tell you where to find that gentle Sunday afternoon ride in the park you’ve been looking for.
- Cyclemeter – straight to the app
- Walk Jog Run – straight to the app
- GMaps Pedometer
- Map My Run
- Cycle Maps
