Epic Ride Weather is an app for iPhone and Android that allows riders to generate weather forecasts tailored to their specific route, speed, and riding date and time. If you’re wondering if you’ll need a rain jacket or whether you should bring an extra bottle on your next ride, Epic Ride Weather can help you decide.

You will receive a limited number of forecasts for free, and then can purchase 10,000 forecasts for $3.99 in the app. Every 10 minutes of estimated ride time uses one forecast. So a 60 minute ride would use 6 forecasts.

    After you have installed the app:
