Top 3 reasons why I carry my phone while Biking
- Emergencies. I may need someone to change a flat!
- Strava. This GPS based iPhone app charts incline, miles, time, and calories. Sure, there are lots of apps that do this, but the fun part- riders can compete via location “segments”. Strava lists fast riders in order by gender and overall. Climb to the top and gain a crown, called the King/Queen of the mountain. This app just makes biking fun. Set goals, achieve & conquer with Strava.
- Photo Opportunities! Bikes can take us places we’ve never seen before. Singletrack trails are winding throughout the world waiting to show us the hidden majestic beauty that awaits. We love looking through biking photos reclaiming the exultant feelings and challenges of certain climbs. Some of my most favorite shots have been on bike rides, all with my iPhone.
Many of my photos are posted to Instagram, and are already formatted square. I print them all up and organize them into my 12×12 albums. (sheet protectors on Amazon)
Lastly, biking endorphins bring out the creative side. As we were climbing the rocks in Southern Utah last month, I thought- “I need some biking themed .abr photoshop brushes to “stamp” on these photos and tell the story”.
And then, I thought I should share.
