Reasons you need a Bike GPS.
Like most of us cyclists, whether you’re a road racer or a downhill mountain biker, knowing how far you’ve travelled and how fast (or slow) you’ve managed to conquer that hill is a must. With a bike GPS, you can quickly and effortlessly monitor your ride and get instant rewards for all the effort you have put in.
Every cyclist loves to brag about their ride, the speed, distance and elevation travelled. Using a bike GPS means you can back your boasts with detailed data, plot your ride onto a satellite map and share with your fellow riders via social media. It’s time to claim those bragging rights.
Whilst the use of a smartphone app is increasingly popular, purchasing a dedicated GPS Bike computer is ideal for any rider especially a data hungry cyclist.
Pro’s of a Bike GPS.
Using a Bike GPS Computer has many advantages for a cyclist over a smartphone app. Firstly, they are compact, lightweight and fit easily onto your bike. They are created with a cyclist in mind and being lightweight aids the balance of your bike. They are also designed specifically for outdoor use, meaning they’re fully weatherproof and less likely to get damaged in an accident or if they slip out of the holder.
What type of rider are you?
Memory-Map Bike 270 Pro are designed for the enthusiast and competitive professional riders.

Free Subscription to www.trailzilla.com included.

Button or Swipe Screen?
Although today’s modern way of manufacturing products is to include a swipe screen on every device, our Bike GPS units have been designed with functional buttons. When out riding in all kinds of weather, swipe screens can become impractical and difficult to use, particularly when using cycle gloves. By using buttons, we have alleviated these irritations, allowing Memory-Map Bike GPS users to keep their gloves on and not have to wipe dry the screen.
Long Battery Life.
Memory-Map Bike 270 Pro GPS bike unit has a built-in rechargeable battery that’s capable of producing up to 20 hours of use from fully charged. Compare this with the average smartphone and app which can last up to 5 hours on a single charge and the benefits of a Bike GPS for a full days ride makes perfect sense.
Bike GPS’s are designed for maximum readability while out riding on the roads or over difficult mountain bike trails. With larger digits and a clear, simple display, Memory-Map Bike GPS computers can be read even through the harshest of road vibrations.
Ride at night? A backlight feature is a must for any commuter, particularly during the winter months of the UK and Europe. Memory-Map Bike 270 Pro is backlight for easier reading and displaying data, rather than shining your helmet torch onto the screen.
Wire Free GPS Computer.
By being a wireless device, Memory-Map Bike 270 Pro is easy to install and no messy wires which can affect your bike control.
Record Your Rides.
Memory-Map Bike GPS records your ride and saves it as a GPX file so you can upload it to see where you have been and review your stats.
As well as recording your cycling performance, Bike 270 Pro can be switched to record your walking and running pace.
Bike 270 Pro comes with a simple yet secure mount to attach to your unit to your handle bars.
What are the advantages of using an Heart Rate Monitor?
Using a Heart Rate Monitor (HRM) with your Bike GPS has a number of key benefits, particularly for the competive and professional rider. Firstly, you can accurately measure your maximum heart rate and resting heart rate throughout your ride, pinpointing times where you are physically exerting yourself. This allows you to work out the correct training intensities with more accuracy and ensure you maintain the correct effort. Additionally when used in competition, HRM’s can be a valuable piece of equipment to ensure correct pacing. This is especially true in longer races and for riders who always tend to go off too fast and get a rush of blood to the head.
Uses of a Cadence Sensor.
A Cadence Sensor is a great training tool for people who want to ride efficiently and not burn up all their energy stores. By fitting a Cadence, you can monitor your revolutions per minute and ensure you are in the correct gear for the speed and incline you are travelling. Keeping your cadence at around 100 will allow you to ride efficiently whilst maintaining speed.
