With your iPhone mounted on your handlebars you can follow directions and you can keep track of your cycling with apps such as Strava and CycleMeter.
There's a huge variety of bike mounts out there to choose from. Here I'll outline two of my favourites and why I think they are the best.
It's also worth investing in a portable battery pack such as the Veho Pebble as using your iPhone for navigation uses up a lot of battery. This can sit in a handlebar bag and keep your iPhone charged.
Here's a quick list of apps I'd recommend: Bike Doctor - for repairs. Bike Hub - for navigation (UK). Strava and Cycle Meter - bike computers. I recommend more apps for cyclists in my next guide.
