    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...

    Anything else?

    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.

    Marathon! Very happy with it. And the battery life is good with the app. I recently did a 5 hour mountain bike ride and my phone was still around 60% at the end of the ride.

    Second for Marathon, it's a really solid app for tracking your data. And on WP8 it uses background GPS now, so even more awesome.

    Sports tracker.
    Pro
    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
    Con
    You have to use another site for correcting altitude
    For road or commute the calories are correct but for mtb they are way off.

    I've found the runtastic app (which syncs with a service of the same name) works great.

    I have used Sports Tracker and am pleased with it. I haven't tried Endomondo or Runtastic yet so I don't have anything to compare it against.

    Endomondo is quite good, I use it for running but there is a cycling mode I think. Tracks your route and provides stats etc that you can save and upload.

    I've been using Chaser regularly (most days) for a few months now and have found it to be great. Accurate tracking, good battery usage, simple interface. Unfortunately it seems that Strava has gone & changed the API's and haven't granted access to them yet, so Chaser has stopped working & been pulled from the marketplace (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 use LocaToWeb which is for WP8, Android and iPhone. It is a real time location tracker that enables your family and friends to follow you live. However, you can also track in private mode. Then you can log in to LocaToWeb - Real time GPS tracking and see all your archived tracks.

    I tried to find Chaser but it seems this app is no longer available.

    I use my Suunto watch now instead of my smartphone, but I previously used Runtastic Pro for both cycling and running and it worked great.

    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....

    Hi,

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