Another 8 apps for the gran fondo rider

Earlier we published an article with 8 useful apps and sites for the cyclist. We received so many suggestions on this for even more useful apps that it's time for a part 2!


This Strava extension allows you to see how many new roads you ride. A nice way to discover roads you've never been to before. Wandrer has a free trial version.

2. Wahoo Fitness

If you forget your bike computer or the battery runs out, you can of course log your ride with the Strava app. But there's one drawback: you can't link a power meter to that (anymore). With the free Wahoo Fitness app, you can. Afterwards, you can easily upload your ride to numerous platforms, including Strava and Trainingpeaks. You don't necessarily need Wahoo equipment for this app, by the way! For iOS and Android. Completely free.

3. Trailforks

Find the best MTB trails, anywhere in the world. Also has a route builder. There's an app for both iOS and Android

4. Zwofactory

Create your own workout to finish indoors in ERG mode? In Zwift or another program, for example? You can do that really easily and completely for free with Zwofactory. No registration required.
