Epic Ride Weather provides personalized weather forecasts that take into account your speed and location, combining multiple forecasts to give you a precise projection of weather for the duration of your ride.
How It Works
Epic Ride Weather connects with your favorite GPS app such as Strava, Ride With GPS, Garmin and Komoot. You pick the route, set the start time and Epic Ride Weather provides a forecast for the whole ride.
A distinct forecast is provided for every 10 minutes of ride time, based on the location that you'll be at that time. With unmatched hyperlocal forecasting from DarkSky, you'll see how temperature, wind speed and direction, and probability of rain vary throughout the ride.
Pick the best time of day to ride based on your route and pace, with the best (or worst) conditions shown for start times throughout the day.
Strava Segments: Your favorite segments are shown alongside your activities and routes. Segments can be sorted by current weather conditions, showing those with the highest tailwind first based on the forecasted wind speed and yaw angle. Today could be your day to best your PR!
Professional cycling teams signed up to the VeloViewer WorldTour package can connect their Race Hub directly with Epic Ride Weather. State-of-the-art weather forecasting can be used to inform race day tactics and strategy for any upcoming stage, race, ITT, TTT or prologue from VeloViewer Race Hub.

Ratings and Reviews
Great for ride and big runs
I live in the mountains and weather can change at elevation. This app allows me to be better prepared when I head out. I’ve now used it for road bike, alpine MTB, alpine running and backcountry skiing!
I wouldn’t plan a big ride without using it! Always accurate and integrates well with Strava.
I was dubious because there have not been enough ratings of this app yet. However it is a fantastic and reliable tool. Easy to use, communicates seamlessly with almost every ride app out there, and I have found it to be extremely accurate! My commute is over 20km and I go from inland near the base of a large hill to the coast. Now I know whether to take rain gear, winter gear, or both.
