Product Summary

Bikemap is a cycling specific route planning tool with free, subscription, and lifetime purchase options. Bikemap has over 10.6 million different user-generated cycling routes in over 100 countries at the time of publishing and this will continue to grow as the app gets used more and more.

You can plan or search for a route with the app or your computer. When searching for routes you can filter the routes by length, ascent, bike type (mountain bike, road bike, city bike), and surface type (gravel, unpaved, and paved).

Most of Bikemap’s features are behind the paywall. Premium offers the ability to download maps and routes for offline use. You can also utilize turn-by-turn navigation. Before you ride, you can use detailed route previews that preview the route elevation with color coded gradients.

Premium allows you to turn your phone into a customized bike computer; selecting which statistics to display on your phone while you ride. Upgraded membership also provides fall detection for safety, a feature unique to Bikemap. Unfortunately, it does not have live tracking like many of Bikemap’s competitors.

Bikemap has mixed reviews. Some users found fun new cycling routes and liked using Bikemap to track their cycling. They liked that they could plan routes both in the app and on a computer and that you could pick routes based on the type of bike.

Other users had trouble with navigation and felt that Bikemap led them to unsafe routes and some routes that used closed private roads. Many reviewers were upset that so many features were behind the paywall and that the free version was frequently prompting them to upgrade to the premium membership.
