You don't have to be a world-class cyclist in order to win big in this game. The Cycling 2013 app for your iPod touch, iPad, and iPhone lets you move through this race course that features 15 different stages. There are a few different game modes to choose from, all kinds of terrain to cycle through, and you'll need to not just watch the track but your own stats; you also have to be aware of what the other cyclists are doing.
There is no such thing as a mundane track to race in the Cycling 2013 app. Every course you take on offers its own challenges and fun. You’ll be biking through mountains, flat areas, cities; all kinds of great environments. There will be points you'll be on the velodrome banked track and the road and of course your technique will need to reflect these changes. As mentioned there are all kinds of variables that will affect your race outside of the course itself. You need to watch out for aggressive cyclists trying to beat you and be wary of your own fatigue level. It’s a balancing act that you'll need to work on perfecting in order to excel.
The game features a few in-app purchases of vitamins and energy drinks to help out your cyclist. These range in price from $0.99 to $1.99. In the latest update there were a number of bug fixes and it has now been made iOS 7-compatible.
Choose from a variety of courses and tracks

The Cycling 2013 app features three different game modes so you have a bit of a challenge ahead of you. Each of the modes offers its own goal/challenge and you can even go up against the computer through 10 different bike tracks. The developers have taken a lot of pride to ensure the graphics and gameplay is smooth, exciting, and most of all, realistic. It doesn't matter if you're an experienced cyclists or a novice; there is no shortage of challenge. For those of you who are ultra-competitive the app supports the online Leaderboard. This is your chance to win bragging rights among your friends.
Some of the additional features include five difficulty levels, 10 grand tours with three/five/or seven stages, six different cyclists to choose from, and more. Keep in mind each of the cyclists have their own performance levels.
