Your shortcut to the CITY CYCLING campaign

Smarter on the road with the CITY CYCLING app. You simply track your routes via GPS and the kilometres are credited to your team and your municipality. In the results overview you can quickly check who in your team is cycling how much and how you compare to other teams. In the team chat you and your team members can arrange joint tours or cheer each other on.

By the way: By using the app, you can also improve the cycling infrastructure in your local area!

Analysis by CITY CYCLING

We analyse your routes and
share our findings
with your municipality.

Improved cycling infrastructure

Your municipality enhances
the infrastructure for cyclists based
on our analyses.

The app as a planning tool

Where are a lot of cyclists on the road? Where do things go smoothly for cyclists – and where are there hold-ups like red lights? Where are certain routes avoided and other preferred? We seek answers to just these questions during research and development projects in collaboration with various spin-offs of the Technical University in Dresden (TU Dresden). We gain valuable insights into cycling behaviour from the routes tracked since 2018 and present our findings in heat maps, traffic volume and direction-dependent speed maps, origin-destination relationships as well as waiting times at nodes. This information can then be made available to traffic planners working in the municipalities participating in CITY CYCLING. And it of course goes without saying that the more routes are tracked, the more useful the findings!

The RADar! reporting platform complements this offer, helping cyclists to draw their local municipality’s attention to problematic and/or dangerous places along cycling routes via the CITY CYCLING app or online. Pins can simply be dropped on a map and a reason for the reports added. The municipality is then informed and can take further action as appropriate.

Your data is safe

The collection and processing of data is in compliance with EU data protection standards. The data collected in the MOVEBIS research project is anonymised prior to the scientific evaluation and is used exclusively as non-personal factual data in the results.

Detailed information on the subject of data protection can be found here.

In addition to the app, it is of course still possible to enter the kilometres online.
