Sipping on a few beers enjoying a rare sunny day in London my friend asked: “How’s the blog?”.
“Yeah, pretty good, I’m writing a new eBook” I replied.
“You are writing a new what?” my clearly internet illiterate friend asked.
“A new eBook – you know a downloadable book.”
“Oh right, what on?”
“Well, how a cyclist can get the most out of their iPhone”.
Silence fell. My friend was either impressed or baffled. I’m guessing more baffled than impressed – to date the one thing that has managed to impress him is telling him I interviewed Boris Johnson.
Like all good self-centred friends he decided to divert the conversation to himself: “Oh, I’m getting an iPhone soon”. This statement came as a shock to me as just 6 short months ago he made a big point of telling me that iPhones are just for people who want to play around and not do any work.
Choking on my beer I replied: “Really?! 6 months ago you were slating iPhones whilst at the same time struggling to login to Facebook on your Blackberry”. If my friend had been won over by the iPhone then I wouldn’t be letting him live it down so easily.
“Did I? What’s your eBook about anyway”
“Well, using your iPhone you can follow cycle routes, keep a diary of a cycling tour, repair your bike, find a nearby bike shop, track your performance to help you reach training targets, find a cycle friendly route from A to B, keep up on all your favourite cycling forums, log all the necessary details in an accident, keep track of calories, organise a group ride and use it as a safety camera to record your cycling”
“Yep, in fact with a couple of extra attachment you can turn your iPhone into a device that easily rivals the capabilities of £400-£500 GPS devices at a fraction of the cost”
“Yeah, not bad for something that’s just for shooting little pigeons into wooden houses”.
Feeling I’d won that one I took another sip of my beer and laid back to catch some rays whilst letting off a satisfied sigh.
The eBook is now ready to download for £6.95.
Inside, I’ll take you through everything from picking a bike mount that won’t fling your iPhone down the road, to choosing the best apps to install (Over 60 are listed), getting the most out of those apps with features that people often miss and even show you how you can majorly boost your iPhone battery life so that it lasts throughout the entire ride.
It’s an eBook on supercharging your iPhone like it’s on steroids. If you are a cyclist and you are wondering how to use that £500 device you’ve spent your money on that’s sat in your pocket then I recommend you download it.
