With today's smartphones, it makes it easier than ever to map your rides complete with statistics. There are quite a few apps out there that do this quite nicely. One that I have recently discovered is Endomondo Sports Tracker Pro. This convenient little app is available for all of the major smartphone operating systems. I use it on an Android phone.
This app is
loaded with features, but the ones I use most are the live GPS map
tracking, live workout stats, tracking my personal bests and posting my
ride summaries to Endomondo.com for
future reference. It seems to be a very stable app, at least on an
Android device, and it does have users singing it's praises in reviews. I
particularly like it's simple and easy to read user interface which
comes in handy when viewing while riding. There are a lot of
handlebar mounts for smartphones of all makes and sizes, so take
advantage of this great app's features for tracking your next ride.
