Hi, can anyone recommend a good cycling/tracking app? I've tried the one that has the most ratings (and a really long name) but it doesn't seem to work (anymore?). I've tried another one called "Cycle Log" but it thinks I'm on a sport car rather than on a bike as it reports me going at 160 km/h...

I use Chaser, which is a client for the Strava website. While the website has lots of great features, the Chaser app is very bare-bones; start ride, end ride, and then it uploads. But it works well, and if you're not on Strava already you should be. :)

I use GPS & GPX logger. Very dodgy interface (be careful when uploading) but it will log your ride and upload a gpx to your Dropbox account. You can then upload this manually to strava or whatever it is you use. Records elevation and speed etc.

Nice graphics nice companion site.
You can download the gpx using the site.
It estimates calories
You can use a HR sensor but I didn't test
You have to use another site for correcting altitude
For road or commute the calories are correct but for mtb they are way off.

carlinapps | We are a couple of developers, doing apps in our spare time.).
To rub salt in the wounds, I just ran a circuit as part of a mini-comp we're running at work and I have the GPX sitting on my phone but I can't upload it & can't get access to it! Aaaaargh!
Well, I guess I'm on the lookout for a new app until Chaser is fixed, why can't Strava just release their own app for WP8, it would make things so much easier! Even better, why can't WP8 let me access the appdata to retreive the GPX file manually, or chaser let me export it, or anything that lets me not have to rely on the upload working.
Ah well, first world problems I guess.

I just started using my Windows phone for biking. I'm not sure it's more accurate than my bike computer with a sensor on my tire but that's a separate discussion. My first time app is Cycle Tracks GPS and it's fantastic. I also downloaded Cyclometer and will try that out. Now, these apps will hook into strava and ride with GPS. And reason to choose strava over ride with GPS or vice versa?

I'm using Adidas micoach, and this is in my opinion the best tracker app. It's free, it has elevation chart, speed/pace chart, almost everything I need for cycling. It works great, no crashing, works in background. Also it has great web service where you can review your activities, very detail....

I would like to put my Windows Phone app as another option for tracking and upload directly to the site Strava.com totally free.
