Riding a bike is one of my favorite pastimes -- my friends and I used to hop on our bikes and take off. But, sadly, at the end of the day none of us ever knew how far we went, how fast we went, or any other information about the ride. Previously I have driven the route that I rode to find out how far it was, but gone are those days as Strava has launched an application which solves all these issues.
Android owners can download this free application from the market and it will allow users to track their distance, speed, climb and much more in real time right from your device, no more uploading data to a computer to view it. Users can upload their information to the site to keep running records of their rides, but they can also compare and compete with others right from their device. So if you enjoy riding your bicycle and don't want to spend tons of money on a ride monitor, be sure to head to the market and download this today for free. Download links after the break.
