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 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
Epic Ride Weather has been a lifesaver for me. I like to do a bit of traveling and finding out what the weather will be along my designated route is difficult. (I like longer rides, so it's not as simple as checking the forecast for one location)
Using this app has been great because it forecasts the route as you have planned to move through it. It has proven to be fairly accurate, as accurate as most weather forecasting tools are, and since you can update along the way it's easy to see how things are changing. Combine this with your favorite satellite/ radar app and you'll never be fooled by the weather out on a ride again.
Finally, there was a recent issue were private routes developed in Strava became unavailable in the app. (Strava initiated the changes) I contacted David and he was VERY helpful in getting the issues resolved. Required the latest app update to fix. Never had a developer more responsive than him!
So all in all spend the money! It's worth it if you need accurate weather for a local ride, want to plan for a long route in a new place where you aren't familiar with the weather, and I'm confident if you have any troubles David will get you fixed up!
Excellent Support and App
I haven't used Epic Ride Weather very much, but on the occasions that I have, it has been extremely useful. Being able to see the wind directions on the route I intend to ride is the most useful feature for me. I just had a small problem with the app on my iPhone; it said my subscription had expired, even though I had renewed it about two weeks ago on my iPad, and I reached out to David. He responded within minutes and told me how to resolve the issue. Extremely pleased by that! The app is valuable enough to me, that when I renewed, I opted for automatic annual renewals. As a road cyclist, this is an extremely useful addition to my riding 'kit'. Thank you David!
I have been using this app for several years, but I am giving a review now for the first time. Everything about this app is awesome. I pair it up with my Ride With GPS routes and it gives me an accurate weather forecast, including wind direction along the route.
I had a pretty major hiccup today. I was basically locked out as I was trying to get a forecast for a century that I am riding tomorrow. I trashed the app and then downloaded it again... no luck. I wrote the developer, David Green, and he responded right away and said that the problem got fixed on his end. Seriously amazing support!
Get this app!
Developer Response ,
