I recently got a bike and for the last few weeks I've been playing with apps like Strava, Endomondo, Runtastic, iBiker, and MapMyTracks.
I found some of them either very limited (Strava) or too complex and over-designed for when you are cycling. So I decided to give it a go and try to design something better — and here's my first take on a Cycling App (concept).
The App features:
- White and Black UI
- Big and highly visible information
- Multiple screens for different activity types (race, climb, commute)
- Area compass instead of maps
- Third-party API integration (Strava)
- Menu bar / headings colour can be changed to the colours of your bike by taking a photo :)
Any cyclists around?
Feedback is very welcome and if you are an iOS dev and would like to make this happen, please get in touch.

better link to Google Glass while cycling! haha!!
Do you have a in built game? One thing that motivates me to keep going is not the slow raise of the calorie count or the speed going downhill... Its the challenge of beating your previous. It would be nice if you could have a ghost mode. That mirrors over your last recorded time... Being you are doing the same route.
Awesome UI by the way.
Let's make this app reality :)
@Sam Mearns that would make a great addition to the app :) Thanks!
@Ramble Ren I already have a pair of glasses. Why do you think I made the numbers so big? ;)
been there done that :D
looks good so far
I use Strava and I love it, but its complex and not intuitive if cyclist is a beginner.
Your concept could be a lot better mainly based on the type of cycling you would be doing.
I was thinking how about using the secondary cam of the phone and using that as a rear-view mirror? ;)
@Cristian Teichner another google glass guy! sheer envy! haha!
Brilliant! As a Strava user I'm a little jealous of the UI - this should definitely turn into an app soon! BTW what's the font you're using on the numbers?
@Siddharth Arun no need to be jealous :) The plan is to use Strava's API for everything. Strava is awesome and there's no point in building a new platform.
The font I'm using is Miso.
What kind of phone mount is that?
@Chad Roffey it's from Quad Lock http://www.quadlockcase.com
One feature that is missing from nearly every iPhone cycling app is turn-by-turn voice navigation. The Google Maps app has recently integrated it into their app for bicycles but you still cant upload or create a custom route. You also can not access your custom My Places saved routes. I don't wont to have to look at an app for directions. The only thing I want to look at when cycling is whats in front of me. Most apps do not have good bike specific data options. Even if they do have it they don't have it for fixed gear bikes. 40 miles on a fixed gear is like 100 on a geared bike with leaver brakes. So that would also be a nice feature. Pretty detailed intensive suggestions I know haha but I have been thinking about what all of the cycling apps are lacking for a long time now. Those are two huge ones for me personally.
I didnt like runtastic at all for my Cube AMS, you have to pay to track your marathon track. I like how yours looks and would very much want to see it in practice.
What's ur bike model over there?

After all the love, feedback and positive comments on the initial shot a few very talented iOS devs got in touch and it looks like this app will actually happen.
Here's a quick preview of the 'profile' screen. As always feedback is very welcome.
Keep it simple folks: No turn-by-turn directions and no rear-view mirror :)
Please note: currently this is just a concept and is not associated in any means with Strava. However, we'd like to get in touch with them to find out more about their API :)
