Strava Biking App:
Strava (for iOS and Android) is a great app that takes advantage of your phone or GPS watch sensors to let you track your ride. That means from the basics like speed and distance to more complex metrics like cadence, power and heart rate. But what’s really special is Strava’s use of the community. Since this app is used all over the world, with over 11 million workouts per week, you can theoretically hop on your bike, open the app and find the most popular routes near you. While this is a great way to find new rides it’s also perfect for those that need a little competition to help keep their speed up. You can effectively race against others that have ridden the route before.

One of the most advanced GPS cycling computers out there, ELEMNT connects with your smartphone via a free companion app, allowing you to easily set up your data fields, track performance, customize profiles, and share ride data. Compared with other GPS bike computers, this stand-alone unit from Wahoo Fitness is extremely easy to use. Plus, it has a larger diagonal display size than most competitors, and it’s the only device of its kind that’s 100% wireless.
