Wireless charging isn't a great idea.
Wireless charging is inefficient. That means it will run hotter, and charge less. In sunlight, heat may be a problem to the point of even shutting down the phone. Wireless charging will add heat to this.
Plus, you are going to be lucky to get 2 watts through a wireless charger. In bright light running a map and GPS, you may be needing close to 4 watts, or even more at times.

Then there is the issue of clamping the phone to the charger while riding.

Not even worth investigating IMHO.
