We’re always on the lookout for our next cycling adventure. There’s just so much of the world to explore on two wheels that it can often feel quite overwhelming; where to start, where to finish and where are all the glorious coffee shops along the way.
For many cyclists looking for new routes and rides, we turn to popular sites like Sustrans or Strava, but what do you do if you want to create a whole new route just for you? Well, you can roll away your maps because an all-new route planner and navigation app is here, and it’s called Komoot.
Essentially, Komoot allows fans of the outdoors to effectively plan hikes, walks, runs and, of course, cycling adventures. Free to download and free to use, Komoot is available globally across most platforms: iOS, Android and web, as well as for Apple Watch, Android Wear and Samsung Gear smartwatches.
Here are a few reasons why you should get Komoot’ing this year…
Komoot is for everyone
Whether you consider yourself to be a beginner cyclist or a few QoMs away from being a pro, Komoot is for everyone who rides on two wheels.
From the winding undulating roads to alpine trails for the mountain bikers, you can plan any cycling adventure you fancy with recommendations from the local experts, or ‘Pioneers’ in Komoot-speak, on where to stop and what to see along the way. If you need some refuelling or a place to crash after a hard day of pedalling, no problem! You can easily build in stops along the way.
