What's New in Version 1.2

In the pipeline for next version: 5 new routes!
OK, but Jubilee Greenway route needs work!
Just tried to do the London Greenway route, I had to give up as not only were there lots of diversions (many long term around the Olympic Park, which should be noted) but the route in the app is for walkers, not cyclists! Also the Woolwich Ferry was not working, so I had to find my own way to the Greenwich foot tunnel. With a bit more work this could be a great app, but buyers should be aware that it is far from perfect and you will probably have to use other apps to actually ride some of the routes.
The app and routes given are fantastic. Each one has a video, points of interest, map and brilliant description.
I and my wife have just completed the towpath ride from limehouse to angel and it was perfect.
The ability to favourite routes might be a nice addition for the next release.
Great cycling around London!
App works great for me on iPhone 4 - love the selection of rides and how easy app is to use. Great for following cycle routes on weekend!
