Bicycle Network: Join in
RiderLog is a free app that turns every bike ride into a vote for better bicycle facilities. Download it to your iphone now.
Your RiderLog app records basic details of your trips and anonymously uploads them to the Bicycle Network. All the travel logs are then aggregated to show when, where and why we are riding.
This information is used to improve the planning of bike infrastructure and convince authorities to invest more in the locations where people ride.
The Bicycle Network is an outreach activity of Bicycle Network Victoria in Australia, one of the worlds biggest bike rider organisations, with the purpose of More People Cycling More Often. More at www.bicyclenetwork.com.au
Start the app, choose transport or recreation, press the silver Sleep/Wake button and put the phone in your pocket, bag or bike mount to use as a bike computer . At the end of your trip, wake up your phone and save your ride details.
The app will log your ride in your phone, including elapsed time and average speed. Press Map to see your route. The phone tracks your cumulative distance and time over the week and month, providing a record of your activity. See below for more detailed instructions.
You decide how much information about you and your riding gets uploaded. The data is anonymous. Unless you change the Settings no personal details are provided.
