Most cycle orientated Garmin GPS's have a speed and cadence feature, you will need this Garmin GSC10 Speed/Cadence Sensor to make use of this.

Cons: bad after taste

Can I use the garmin 800 discoverer (os map) for road biking aswell?

I do both mtb and road ike but dont know if can use the garmin 800 discover/trail for both?
Yes you can, it's an OS map and you can't tell it where you want to go and it will give you turn by turn guidance like a car sat nav.

Is this the one with the OS maps? Too confused with all the different bundles!!

From experience I originally ordered this thinking it had the os maps but it doesn't, it has the heart rate monitor and cadence/speed sensor. The os maps are included in the trail bundle.
