Official supplier to Team Visma | Lease a Bike

If you ride a bike, this app is for you. From pro WorldTour teams to casual riders, Epic Ride Weather helps cyclists to achieve their goals, get out more often, and have more fun on the bike.

* Pick just the right kit every time.
* Choose the best time of day to ride.
* Plan to maximize the tailwind, and avoid a headwind on the way home.
* Plan perfect hydration and nutrition.

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, Komoot and Plotaroute. 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.

Great App!

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!

Indispensable!

I live in the northern Rockies and bike year-round. The weather is tough to predict in the mountains, but technology has made the weather-guessers so much better. The proper application of this technology through Rpic Ride has helped me properly chose my routes and gear and has lead to far more enjoyable rides. This app helps me live by the old adage, “There is no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothing.”

I will ride in the wind, but I prefer to let it blow me home. Again, big win here with forecasting direction and magnitude at the precise place and time I will be on my route.

Sure, I could pack the kitchen sink every time I ride (and occasionally have to), but this app helps me avoid overpacking. I worry less and ride more.

Thanks for the great feedback and review Mountain Dave!

Essential application for cyclists

Extremely useful application for any cyclist that rides outdoors. Overlays weather data with your planned cycling route, departure date/time and speed. It allows you to make educated decisions regarding what route to take on any particular day, what clothing to wear, and what time to ride. I especially appreciate knowing wind direction and speed. The application is very easy to use and the output is easily shared with your riding partners. I lead a lot of rides with my cycling club in Chicago and always use this app as conditions can change, depending on which direction we travel and who doesn’t want to have the tailwind home….. Well worth the subscription price.
