Get On Your Bike With These Awesome Apps
If you prefer 2 wheels to 4 and don’t mind getting a little wet every now and then, you are probably going to enjoy this article. Because we are discussing a pair of iOS cycling applications that can do more than just turn your cycling frown upside down. In fact, you will not only enjoy your bike even more than usual, but you will also get so much more out of those rides that we all love so much. Cyclists care more about their carbon footprint than those of us who drive cars, and the fitness aspect is also too important to overlook. But we can promise you that once you have these bad boy Apps in your iPhone, you’ll be even more addicted to cycling than you ever thought possible. So please take a few minutes out of your busy schedule and enjoy our unbiased reviews, because we’ve written them especially for you guys and girls!
Bike Repair By Atomic Softwares – $3.99https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/bike-repair/id382006079?mt=8
This App will run on your iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad, and it requires iOS 5.0 or later for smooth running. Okay, although our first iOS cycling application is not a freebie, it will still save you heaps of time and money in the long run, or should we say – long ride? Because every responsible cyclist knows that your bike needs to be in tip-top condition if you want to stay safe on the road. There are 64 very technically detailed guides onboard Bike Repair and each one adds so much value to bike repair and maintenance. You’ll get a bunch of useful photos with every single guide and nobody should have a problem following the well laid out instructional content. As well as being able to get you out of almost every cycling problem known to man, Bike Repair also has a very cool feature that allows you to replace parts on your bike, should you need them in the future. You can even sell your trusty bike with this application and upgrade accordingly when the time is right. So we reckon the sub $4 price tag here is well worth the money, and then some!

Fixed gear bicycle fanatics will love the way that you can track everything that you eat and balance it up against your physical exertions each and every day.
