One of the most important applications in a cyclist’s arsenal would be GPS tracking software. For quite some time now Strava has been the industry leader by allowing runners and cyclists to track their performance, challenge them to reach new milestones and go head-to-head with friends.
Nothing puts as much of a downer on an awesome ride quite like a terrible change in the weather. The best cure for getting caught in a rain storm is prevention. Weather Underground is one of the most accurate weather prediction apps out there – and another industry standard.
Here at joburg.co.za we love MyFitnessPal. A lot. The application allows you to count your calories, diarise your diet and keep track of your exercise. We like to call it the “As to Not Kid Ourselves” application.
St. John Ambulance First Aid for Cyclists
Accidents happen, and we need to be prepared for when they do. Thanks to St. John Ambulance you can now have the know-how on the go with this nifty little app. The application is aimed at cyclists and carries with it useful information, such as how to splint a broken arm or treat a cut, scrapes and other nasties.
Before jumping on the bike and pedaling to oblivion and back, plan your route by using Cycle Maps. The app will work out the distance and calculate an estimated time. Pairing this app with Weather Underground will ensure that you are prepared as can be. All that’s left is to put on your helmet and head out the door.
