Skift Take

The CycleTracks app aims to improve cycling conditions on commonly ridden routes throughout the city to improve bikers’ trips and encourage drivers to trade fuel for pedals.

Cyclists in Fort Collins, USA, are being asked to take part in shaping the area’s cycling infrastructure by tracking their riding habits with a GPS app.

Using the CycleTracks app, downloaded from iTunes, local riders use their iPhones to track their activity, then send the data to the city authority to help them determine what areas need more bike lanes, trails or signs to help with traffic flow.
