Besides running, one of my favorite pastime activity is biking. I love taking my bike and just go around the city or even explore the areas around. It’s a very nice and easy way to know you bearings.

Combining my hobby with some useful data I started using apps for cycling. I use the biking apps to track my travels, see average speed, how many calories I burn and a lot more interesting info. I made a list with the apps for bike and you can see my favorite apps below.

I can’t say these are the best iphone bike apps but I can however say that I find them very useful that I love the way they use GPS for biking.

I would only which there would be as many android cycling apps as for iPhone so my Android friends can enjoy as well.

RunKeeper uses the GPS technology found in the iPhone to track your fitness activity, giving you comparable results to an expensive GPS watch. Now, you can also enter your activities manually, including your treadmill runs too!

The intuitive and easy-to-use interface of the app makes it easy to track how far you went, how long it took, what your pace/speed was, how many calories you burned, and the path you traveled on a map.

Once your activity is completed, the data is synced to the RunKeeper website (www.runkeeper.com) where you can view a history of all of your activities, and cumulative totals of all of your vital stats. You can also share your progress with friends by posting your activities to Facebook and Twitter, and creating a profile page that allows people to view all of your public activities.

You can get insight in your ear while you are doing your activities on whether you are ahead/behind your target pace, or get coached through an interval workout.

You can also get in-app heart rate data during your activity (separate hardware required). Get more info at http://runkeeper.com/heart-rate-monitoring.

Features:

* Activity Tracking
No need for an expensive, standalone fitness tracking device when you can use your iPhone 3G or 3GS to do the same thing. Now you can track how far you went, how long it took you, and the route you traveled right from your iPhone

* Personal Dashboard
Store all historical activities on runkeeper.com, where you can keep track of totals and monitor your progress

* Maps integration
See the exact path you traveled on a map, both on the device and on our website

* Activity Sharing
Share your activities with friends via email, or by posting them to your favorite social sites, including Facebook and Twitter

* Music
You can listen to the iPod during your activity, and even change tracks without leaving the RunKeeper application

* iPod Integration
Choose one of your iPod playlists to start automatically the moment you begin your activity

* Audio Cues
Get time or distance-based updates through your headphones during your activity

* Interval Workouts
Create a workout built from intervals of time and/or distance, and let the audio cues coach you every step of the way

* Target Pace
Enter a target pace at the start of your activity and get coached on whether you are ahead/behind that pace through your headphones

* Geo-tagged Photos
Take photos without having to stop your activity. Photos are geo-tagged so when you view them on RunKeeper.com, they appear on the map right where you took them

* Splits
You can see your split times in the app as you do your activities

* Manual Activity Input
You can enter activities manually, including runs done on a treadmill or without your iPhone

Please Note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Solid app, distance a little off (by jj.diaz.ny2)

Love that shows you map, distance, ascent, descent, avg speed, top speed, voice progress over trail and sharing with my fellow riders. Good app at an decent value!
     
Superior GPS app (by ch.crow)
Very impressive GPS system, using it at least 2X per week and every time it’s been great. Excellent tracking, very accurate. Exporting my tracks and saving to Trailrunner for Mac to help me with my training- the app makes it very easy.

Wishing I’d never updated! (by DogsInPartyHats)
I loved this app for tracking runs and hikes, but upon updating, all my drafts were deleted and now the gps function is absurdly wrong–it’s often tracking me as traveling in straight lines, magically, through the middle of lakes, though I assure you that I stayed very dry. I gave it a few tries, but now I’m just looking for another app.
     
Wish I didn’t update (by XV2)
Liked the app very much until the recent update. Now the app doesn’t even start.

Great APP (by CC Scot)
I have tried at least six different cyclometer apps and this one is the best.
     
Best tool to track performance (by Masi rider)
I’ve tried lots of the iPhone tools available to track cycling performance and this one is by far the best one.
My biking app from all of the above is RunKeeper because I can do much more than just biking.
