5 Best Cycling Computers to use for those long Summer Rides

When you go out for a long ride, no matter what time of year, it’s always handy to track your route. In this modern day, the best cycling computers do much more than route plotting and tracking. There is a huge selection that are ‘connected’. This means that you can upload your rides to Strava, the app that is coupled with your cycle computer, and to your own social network. The technology that these devices have installed don’t just report on routes, but GPS capabilities also calculate altitude using barometers, your speed, your distance – you name it! There are also health related features too  that can measure such aspects as your heart rate and calories burned. You can improve your performance, share with your friends, and share with us using #YourRide . So, cycling computers are particularly handy and fun to have and use on your ride, but which device should you buy?

I'm a runner at heart but since shin splints became a big part of my life, I turned to cycling as a form of cross training. I love riding track and am a regular on the Manchester velodrome; on the road I ride a Trek Lexa and I call it Toby.
