RiderLog, the iPhone app that turns every bike ride into a vote for better bicycle facilities.
Outware worked with the Bicycle Network to build the RiderLog app and the entire web-based backend system that aggregates ride data and performs custom reporting.
In it’s first year of operation RiderLog users logged over 250,000km of rides, giving the Bicycle Network a unique insight into the riding habits of Australian’s. This data helps to inform their approaches to local, state and federal government and road authorities.
RiderLog displays your speed, distance and time on a beautiful, easy to read display.
After your ride you’ll be able to view your ride history and plot any of your rides on a map.
Plus, RiderLog anonymously uploads your trip data to the Bicycle Network (one of the worlds largest cycling organisations), so your cycling information can be 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 Victoria in Australia, one of the worlds’ biggest bike rider organisations, with the purpose of More People Cycling More Often.
RiderLog uploads your trip data to the Bicycle Network securely via SSL, so that your cycling information can be used to improve the planning of bike infrastructure along your route.
No other identifying data, except your iPhone’s UDID, is collected without your opt-in permission. All personally identifiable data will be kept confidential.
