★ EASY TO USE - WITH STYLE ★
B.iCycle provides all the information you need on the bike. B.iCycle is known for its stylish user interface combined with maximum ease of use. A new experience on the bike that is a real game changer!
★ MAXIMUM PRECISION - BIKE LIKE A PRO ★
Based on countless test drives and refinement we calculate speed, distance, altitude and calories with maximum precision of the built in GPS. No calibration needed! Units can be set to US or metric. GPS auto pause detection stops the timer for you during a standstill (e.g. when stopping at a traffic light).
★ ALWAYS AVAILABLE - NEVER LOSE ANY TRIP DATA ★
Our multi tasking support allows using the iPod player, texting or calling while recording a trip.
B.iCycle is 100% compatible from iPhone 3G to iPhone 5 and works with iOS 6.
Very power efficient for up to 6 hours of recording with the display turned off.
★ THE BEST MAPS - TAILOR MADE FOR BIKERS ★
The only biking app that provides the amazing map source OpenCycleMap with highlighted bike paths and contour lines.
A community of more than 500.000 OpenStreetMap users are mapping roads and bike trails for you! OpenStreetMap constantly collects all bike lanes and trails around the world and is getting better each day!
Watch your bike automatically move on the map while you bike and zoom in on your current (red line) or saved (blue line) trails.
B.iCycle stores map data that has been loaded once. That saves battery on the ride and allows you to preload the map when you are biking in an area with no cellular connection or abroad.
★ IMPORT TRIPS AND SHARE YOURS WITH FRIENDS ★
All trips will be stored and can be shared right after a trip or anytime later from the track history.
Share your trips via email (KML and GPX e.g. to watch a trip with Google Earth), Facebook, Twitter and 1-2-sports with other bikers.
Import trips from the internet for free via the sports portal 1-2-sports.
★ FREE UPDATES - FOREVER ★
We update our roadmap constantly based on the best feedback and most frequent requests from our huge community.
We have amazing new stuff in the pipeline and all future updates will be 100% free!
★ B.iCycle - BIKING WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN! ★
* For the full experience we recommend to use a bike mount. We love the solutions from Wicked Chili and Dahon. Check www.b-icycle.com for more information.
* Please note: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Offline maps! Great use of old iPhone 3GS without cell service.
I have been using this app on my old iPhone 3GS (without cell service) the past few years. It was the only map app I tried that supported offline maps, so it has become my default biking app. I start it, take a ride, and at the end, stop it and send the results (via WiFi). I can open them in Google Maps on my iPad and take a screen shot of the route to share with others. Easy to use, though there were other apps I liked much better but they did not support offline maps. (Offline maps is kinda lousy - you have to scroll around everywhere you want to go so it caches the map data, so if you don’t do this ahead of time, you have no maps, and if you change zoom, you have no maps. Limited, but works once you learn how to use it.)
Shifting sands of the desert …
I've been using this app for about 3 years now. First it sucked all the juice out of the battery hitting the GPS in my 3GS. That was fixed. Then they kept playing with the sharing mechanism. Now I've upload it onto a new iPhone 5S and guess what more glitches! Now, it no longer allows me to "stop" the timer as it did on the 3GS so that I can share out the performance. Instead when I hit the "sure?" button it just returns to stop and sits idle in "Paused" mode with the current track! Plus? It still gets hung up after sharing a track. When you try to restart the timer the clock sits frozen UNTIL you reboot the phone. Then it starts up fine. This has always been the case as long as I've owned the app. Its glitchy sorry. PLUS there seems to be no good way to report a problem!!!
Does what it says and is good app; use it all the time
The app works great, but no new features. Would like to have temperature, would like to be able to keep track of two different bikes (mountain/road), calories should be based on weight (bike and person) not some avg value programmed, total climbed altitude in addition to climbed altitude, be able to delete total calories and replace with trip calories, time of day, etc -> values screen should be configurable
