About this app

Specialized Ride is your go-to app for recording bike rides, analyzing your cycling metrics, planning rides with friends, and cycling safely when riding by yourself.

Have peace of mind on all your bike rides when you connect your Specialized ANGi sensor with the Ride app and enable Live Tracking.

If your ANGi detects a crash event where you’ve likely been knocked unconscious, your emergency contacts will be sent an email or text alert from your phone and notified of your location.

Live Tracking allows your emergency contacts to follow you along during your ride. Simply turn on ride alerts for an emergency contact and the app will automatically notify them when you’ve started a ride.

Whether you’re training for a race or event, using your bike for commuting or getting around town, or to explore the trails with your friends, you can use the free ride recorder to track all of your bike rides.

The Ride app automatically tracks stats like speed, distance, time riding, and elevation. When you’re done riding, you can view the ride history and analytics tabs to see how your activity is trending.

We offer full integration with Garmin, Wahoo*, and Strava, so it’s extra easy to record rides and share them with your friends.
If you have a heart rate monitor, cadence sensor, or power meter connected to your Garmin or Wahoo device, you can see that data as well.

Although you can record a cycling activity on any bike using the Ride app, riders with Specialized bikes can use the app to register their bike and activate its warranty.

Be on the lookout for community events, bike demos, and more on the community tab in the Ride app’s feed.

If you enjoy riding with others, you can join and create group rides in the Ride app. The group message board lets you communicate with riders who’ve joined the ride and keeps everyone informed.

When you’re looking for a ride to join, you can search for rides based on day, time, type, and distance.
If you want to create a group ride, you can import a route, choose an existing route, or create a route using the route planner.

If you need inspiration for your next ride, the Ride app hosts an ever-growing global library of bike routes.

Additionally, we have an easy-to-use route builder tool that is housed on ride.specialized.com.

Once you’re done creating a route, you’ll be able to add it to any group ride that you plan. Riders interested in joining will be able to see a map view of the route, as well as distance, elevation, and whether the route is on road, gravel, or the trails.

NOTE: Continued use of GPS running in the background may decrease phone battery life
*Incoming Wahoo connections will need to be established on ride.specialized.com

Don't bother with the negative reviews on this app. This is one of the best apps ever invented. As a safety feature, if the helmet detects a crash, and the ability to contact a "favourite" contact is quite literally, a life saver. Also, the ability for someone t ocheck where I am, is an amazing feature too. It means dinner is on the table as soon I cycle home from work <3 love it!!!!!

it worked the 1st 2 times I used it, but that was it. Turned off battery optimization as advised and the screen is still black with no data once I hit record. I went ahead and rode today hoping it was a background thing, but realized when I couldn't close the app without a forced stop that it's garbage. My husband never got a notification when I started or ended my ride. Update: I reinstalled the app and it isn't freezing in the house. We'll see if it works in the woods later.

Hi Wendy, apologies for the troubles and thanks for reinstalling it and giving it another go. We hope that resolves the issue. If you experience any other problems, please contact us at www.specialized.com/supportform and we’ll make sure we get it working for you.

Edit:. Ok, you are right. I like the updates and the issue with the ride not saving is fixed. I like the ride analysis and tracking miles on the gear. I would love to be able to add components (like brakes or tires) to the bicycle to track miles for individual components, but that is small. I can now see using Ride as an alternative to Strava rather than having both. ANGi has always worked great for me, and I appreciate not needing a subscription for the feature.

Hi Jason, keep an eye out for our next release. We're implementing a new version of our ride recording engine; this should make your experience even better! Thanks for the feedback.

What's new

This release includes the following critical bug fixes:
* Users who were unable to login to the app without it crashing will now be able to login
* Users who were being logged out unexpectedly should no longer be logged out

Thank you for your patience with us as we worked on these fixes!
