Jamima Wolk already has two successful phone apps to her credit, but the Davis mom is eager to launch her newest app, iRideInside.

“The first two were triathlon-based; I was really excited about this one,” said Wolk, regarding her indoor cycling phone app. “It’s very different than the others.”

Wolk — who did a soft launch earlier to work out the kinks — will unveil her newest creation at a free event from 4 to 6 p.m. Sunday at the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame, 303 Third St., in the southwest corner of Central Park. Her first apps, both released through her company JammyCo, were 1stTimeTri and TriTrainer.

“I’ll have the app there and my bike, so people can try it out,” Wolk said. “I’ll do a little demonstration. But mainly, I want people to enjoy themselves. Enjoy the food, look around.”

The Hall of Fame is waving the standard entry fee for this event, which also features free food and drinks and various prizes.

“I just want to get people excited about it,” said Wolk, who noted that the app itself — which usually costs $4.99 — also will be available for free.

Wolk came up with the idea for the iRideInside app after the birth of her daughter nearly five years ago. Wolk had been taking an indoor cycling class but the birth of her child changed her schedule.

“She’d been taking a nap, and I thought, ‘It’d be so cool to get a workout in now,’ and that’s when I thought of the app,” Wolk said.

The app is basically a cycling trainer to go, with ready-made and custom options. The app also includes information on nutrition, stretching, equipment, proper riding positions and more. It can be used at the gym or at home on stationary bike or a standard bike in a trainer. Wolk notes it is not to be used on the road.

“It’s a great thing; you can take it with you wherever you go,” she said. “If you’re on vacation, wherever.”
