    Android Cycling Apps

    What are some good cycling apps on the Google Play that are free?

    I like Strava and I also have Orux Maps loaded. You can save the maps for offline use with Orux, in case you are riding in an area with no cell service. I never really use it, but knowing I have maps if I need them makes it a bit more comfortable riding new areas.

    Maprika. Track your ride on actual trails maps. Share location with friends. Also works nice for skiing.

    I just got My tracks and did a quick ride with the kids and it seems pretty cool. after words you can view your ride and it works with google earth and is pretty sweet. Doing my first real ride tomorrow with it.

    Been using Mapmyride on my Droid 4 with no problems.

    Correction - one problem - I keep dropping my phone mid-ride; and falling OTB while stopping quickly to try to retrieve it (stupid clipless). LOL

    Never got MapMyRide to set up. Maybe it was an early release but I never went back to it.

    I also had trouble with Mapmyride. I have had great luck with Sportypal (SportyPal | Free tracking mobile application for all GPS enabled phones), which comes in every flavor OS out there, even the never used Windowsphone. I originally used the Blackberry one on a Storm II, and it was the best (read: only one that worked) sports/GPS app on that system. When I got my Android phone I grabbed that version and could not be happier! Stays pretty accurate when compared to the data on a bike computer and alongside a friend riding with a Garmin (of course the phone could be a variable...) They also have a free online community and posting to a free web account that lets you see charts of your progress, etc.

    Endomondo. I like that it talks to you and tells you your time at each mile. Decent mapping.

    +1 for Endomondo. Also because the Wisconsin Bike Federation as part of National Bike to Work week, use t to run a contest to encourage people to bike their commute. It has a great social part of it. Plus, I dont always bike, sometimes I run, or hike, or snowshoe, so I can use the same app.

    Sportstracker is also a good free one.

    I use Cardio Trainer when pedaling for fitness, it syncs to my bluetooth HRM which I like....when on trails or exploring I like Back Country Navigator. It's not a bicycle-specific app but as a GPS with incredibly good Topo Maps it can't be beat.

    Besides Endomondo, I use Locus app for offline navigation. It is very easy to use it, since it allows to download Open Street maps directly from your phone. Also it supports various standards for reading/recording tracks.

    The digital bubble level in the Swiss Army Knife app. You can use it to determine head tube angle and seat tube angle of frames.
    And the next time you're on the crazy steep hill you've been telling everone "must be at least 45 degrees ", you can measure it and find out it's barely 30 degrees
