For many recreational cyclists, Strava is their best friend when it comes to judging performance, but for tracking groups of riders it may not be the best option.
Enter Ralli, an app designed by Chris Hall and Sean Henwood in Princeton, New Jersey, which helps groups manage their training by tracking workouts and analysing performance.

According to the founders; coaches and riders can quickly track the fitness levels of riders, training effort and identify areas that need attention.
“We’re addressing an area of the market that has long been underserved,” said CEO Sean Henwood. “You constantly hear about new fitness-tracking apps, but they’re all aimed at the individual athlete and offer limited group-focused features. Ralli caters to the needs of those fitness groups.”
But it’s not time to delete Strava off your phone yet, Ralli supports integration with the tracking app, as well RunKeeper, MapMyFitness making it easy to upload your workouts.
Ralli claims the app is perfect for those groups of riders who cannot always train together, or for a coach who wants to ditch the traditional pen, paper and spreadsheet when tracking their athletes.
Groups can try Ralli out during a free month-long trial, after which they can choose to pay $2.99/month for each athlete, or an annual group fee of $499.
