Bike Hub smartphone apps can now route for 200 miles

Thanks to the routing engine gurus at Cyclestreets, the iPhone and Android Bike Hub apps can now work out cycle-friendly routes for a stonking 200 miles, double the previous distance.

The Android app is free and can be found in the Android Marketplace. The iPhone app is also free and can be downloaded from the App Store.

Smartphone users should bear in mind that long journeys result in more data being transmitted so a slower response should be expected. The generation of the route and its metadata also takes a little longer.

As 200 miles is probably too far for most cyclists to do in a day – or on one smartphone battery – it’s best to plan such routes on a desktop machine first. Do this on our web-based Cycle Route Planner.
