2. Road ID (free)
With this application, you can personalize the lock screen of your smartphone. In the case of an emergency, you can reach your family and friends in an instant. Also, you can include useful medical information, like your blood type.
Are you cycling on a dangerous route on your own? Don’t worry, you can share your live location with friends. Either way, it is fun to share your ride. If you have a premium Strava account, you can use live tracking too.
Another nice element in the app: If you have stopped moving for a while, your friends get a warning message. Do not forget to turn off these notifications while you are having fresh coffee and warm apple pie on your well-deserved coffee break…
