The iPhone, as we’ve seen, is an amazing gadget for fitness enthusiasts. From awesome fitness apps to uber-useful fitness accessories built around the iPhone, this market is live and kicking all the time.
Besides jogging, cycling is one of the easiest ways to stay fit and healthy for a long time. With the interest that people have in cycling as a fitness regime, we’ve seen quite a lot of amazing apps rolling out. Here’s a collection of some of the amazing iPhone apps for Cycling. We’ve got some trackers, a bike repair app and a cycling coach covered.
Best iPhone Cycling Apps for Bikers:
1. Strava Cycling
An iPhone cycling app list without Strava would probably give away our lack of experience in this field. Kidding. Strava is an awesome app that combines three things effectively: tracking your cycling, letting you explore new places to bike and a social aspect that lets you climb leaderboards. The trackers are awesome and so is the community around Strava.

2. Cyclemeter GPS
Cyclemeter is Strava on steroids. Strava is more of a web+app service but Cyclometer is fully iPhone/iPad-only. The app brings a combination of several things: GPS, trackers, history of your past rides, iCloud support, visual graphs, trainers, planners. Oh, a bunch of this stuff. If you’re looking to do cycling consistently, Cyclemeter is just the app to boost the cycling experience.

3. Garmin Fit
Garmin has been focused on producing apps and accessories for fitness enthusiasts. This one is for cyclists and runners alike. The Garmin cadence sensor (something like the GSC-10 ANT+) connected to your bike can push the limits of the app to greater heights. The app tracks speed, distance, maps routes, calories burnt and can also measure your physical parameters fantastically.

4. Coach My Ride
This one’s a clincher. Coach My Ride was described as the best cycling coach app. The lessons have been developed by “elite” cycling coach Lionel Reynaud. Through hundreds of cycling workouts and personalized coaching plans, the app teaches and trains you. There are workouts under 12 different categories.

5. Runtastic Road Bike GPS Cycling Computer & Tracker
Runtastic has a solid track-record in creating apps for fitness needs. And when these guys do it, they do it full-on. The same applies to their Road Bike GPS Cycling Computer & Tracker. It’s an overwhelmingly feature-rich app which is a complete solution to all your biking needs. It caters to newbies as much as to professionals.
6. Map my Ride+
Integrated GPS camera is like the icing on the cake for the Map My Ride app which does almost everything that any cycling tracker does. Then there’s also the physical parameters that it tracks like calories burnt, nutrition/food. There are also voice prompts on your progress. The app also integrates with various sensors.

7. Bike Repair
Exquisitely detailed bike repair manual that’s not just text. Basically, it’s a visual guide to repairing and taking care of your bike. The app also features some other offshoot things like what to wear (cycling gear) and where to buy your next bike with price comparisons. I think they also have a growing community which can be great if you’re looking for cycling help.
