My Virtual Mission Cycling App

A lot of cycling apps are fabulous for the longer rides out in the countryside. However, if your cycling routine is solely cycling to work the novelty of cycling apps can soon wear off.

With My Virtual Mission you accumulate your miles towards completing an outrageous virtual journey. For example you may want to cycle the length of The Great Wall of China…all 5,500 miles of it! Or perhaps something slightly less daunting like cycling the Land's End to John o' Groats trail is a mere 874 miles in comparison.

So how does it work? Firstly you need to create your mission on the planning map. Then just go out and do your usual cycling. (you may be interested to know that you can also accrue miles from running or swimming also). Once you have completed your cycle be sure to log each of your distances into your mission page or via the smartphone app.

Your progress, along your mission path will be updated and you'll get to see how far you've gone and how far you've got to go. If your mission path progress happens to be positioned on a road, then you can check out your virtual surroundings on Google Street View, which is a really nice touch. Having a visual representation of how far you have travelled helps to keep you motivated for you commute and also adds an exciting new twist to your repetitive commute. Imagine getting up in the morning and thinking "I really want to cycle today so I can get to the Las Vegas strip by the end of the week".

The app is completely free and available on both iPhone and Android devices. Be sure to let us know your outlandish journeys you have set yourself on our Facebook and Twitter pages!
