Tracking Your Trails on Mountainbike

By Sophia Surk

Because the smartphones boom most of us normally possess a GPS device on us. It's merely integrated into our phones. Even lots of easier "not smart" phones have GPS. So tracking your trails on mountainbike is fairly easy. But what does tracking truly mean? It would mean that while you ride your mountabike you have GPS switched on and an app tracks your movements.

So what do I employ for tracking?

IMHO Best GPS Mountainbike Tracking Applications

I utilised quite some of the tracking apps and this is what I am making use of right now (I own an Android phone).

MyTracks For Tracking

MyTracks is an android phone app from Google. I use it for tracking for the reason that it provides me by far the most on-the-go information that I could find. While you are riding you may follow things like time from starting, time spent moving, total distance, current elevation, minimum elevation, maximum elevation, elevation gain, min grade, max grade, maximum speed, average speed, current speed, GPS position. Despite the fact that some other applications seemed just a little bit more accurate in some cases none of them afaik give you so much information as MyTracks.


Endomondo is a web-based service for storing your tracks, analyzing them, sharing them with the community and friends. Endomondo has its own tracking application which looks really good - in reality it looks substantially better than MyTracks but as stated it doesn't offer you so much info which helps you with orientation. Nevertheless it is terrific for running and things like that. App even offers you peptalk and stuff like that.

You do not have to use Endomondo app to use Endomondo though. I merely export a track from MyTracks (or any other tracking app) and import it into Endomondo and you are carried out. This is the combination I am using right now. The graph in the starting of this post is downloaded from Endomond for instance. Then you will find several other applications for exactly the same purpose that you might also want to check:


EveryTrail is cool for the reason that it contain loads and loads of trails from customers from all over the world which you can look for and then follow them. Visit their web-site, choose your sport and place and you will get all the trails that you can ride around you. Not surprisingly you will find far more trails on offer in some places than in other but I feel EveryTrail has the greatest and most simply accessible database of those tracks.

Orux Maps

Orux Maps is a quite powerful app that allows you to do all sorts of things with your tracks. I didn't have time to play with it some more, but check it out.
