Cyclists, editors, and technology experts from all over the world are saying great things about What to Wear Cycling, including (to name a few) Road.cc, London Cyclist, SELF Magazine, The Washing Machine Post, Elcyclista, GearCaster, Tap! Magazine, Cyclepresse, Gelegenheitsradler, Sportive Cyclist, and Global Cycling Network!
What to Wear Cycling is the only way to find out what to wear when you ride. Anytime. Anywhere. Why get 30 minutes into a ride before wishing you had sleeves (or wishing you could ditch the jacket)? Get the info before you get on the bike, using the best local weather info, along with the best cycling clothing calculations. Then, get dressed and get on your bike!
WEATHER WHERE YOU ARE (OR WHERE YOU AREN'T)
Getting dressed at the base of Tourmalet? In your own house? On a cycling vacation? Checking a location you're visiting tomorrow? Maybe you're checking a location that's being ridden in the Tour right now? What to Wear Cycling will sort out what you should wear, wherever you are, or wherever you aren't. Riding now? Riding tomorrow? We've got you covered. Or uncovered, as it were.
CONDITIONS DETERMINED BY YOU
Curious what to wear in a specific temperature range? What to Wear Cycling can do that, too. Standing in the fitting room of your favorite shop in thermal bib tights? Find out what needs to happen outside in order to wear them on the bike. Considering a ride in conditions that are vastly different from what's happening today or tomorrow? Throw some conditions at What to Wear Cycling and find out what you'll need. No wireless connection? Enter conditions yourself, and we're still there for you. And everything is always based on your personal settings, of course.
SETTINGS FOR YOUR COMFORT
Roasting on a ride while your friends are chilly? Still cold when everyone else unzips their jerseys? What to Wear Cycling allows you to tailor settings to your personal level of comfort. Move the comfort slider to the right if you generally run hot. Slide it left if you tend to be cooler. What to Wear Cycling will calculate what your ideal clothing should be, all based on your level of comfort.
SHARE WITH THE PELOTON
"What are you wearing?" isn't the most elegant question to ask your fellow cyclists. Let What to Wear Cycling tell them. With a tap, the whole peloton can get advice on what to wear on today's ride, tomorrow's ride, or a ride with whatever conditions your choose. Friends don't let friends freeze (or cook).
SAVE YOUR FAVORITE LOCATIONS
Got a place you like to ride that isn't where you currently are located? A nearby mountain? A coastal road? Maybe it's a mountain in Italy. Save the location, and choose it from your Favorites to find out what to wear there. When you first load the app, some great defaults are already included, like Deinze, Belgium, where Merckx trained, and Huez, France, where cyclists suffer every summer. Add and delete as often as you like.
UNITS FOR EVERYONE
Some of us like our wind speed in kilometers per hour. Others like miles per hour. Prefer Fahrenheit to Celsius? Think freezing means 0 degrees? What to Wear Cycling will let you use what works for you. And you'll ride comfortably no matter what.
What's New in Version 2.1
Adjusted behavior of picker in Custom section (thanks Dan).
Small copy updates.
I've had this application for sometime now. And unfortunately with a few updates on the iPhone it's now finding it difficult to operate.
The application is fantastic, a God send for and roadie who wants to dress correctly for any training or racing ride.
But just recently I've been getting constant Network Error messages when I tap on my current location. Only way to solve this issue is find out what the temp is outside and then put in the details manually. Not something you would do paying £1.99 for.
I really hope you update this app in the near future because this has been a great app to check what to wear. But now it's playing up and not working the way it used to 😔.
Great App - badly needs updating
Had this for a couple of years now. Great App which is very accurate. But now no longer works as doesn't connect to weather feed. Needs updating/bug fixes.
Still a really useful app
This app hasn't had an update in a few years but it remains a handy tool to have for those days where you need a bit of help dressing for the conditions.
