The app for the CITY CYCLING campaign!
CITY CYCLING App: Smart on the move. Track your routes easily via GPS and the kilometres are credited to your team and your municipality
Features and functions at a glance:
The routes you cycle will be tracked via GPS and the kilometres credited to your team and municipality. Furthermore your Tracks help to improve the local cycling infrastructure. All routes will be provided to the local traffic planers anonymised and in different visualisations. The more kilometres tracked, the more useful the results will be!

You are able to quickly check who in your team is cycling how much and how you compare to other teams in the results overview.
Communicate with your team and motivate others to cycle even more in the intuitive team chat.
RADar! REPORTING PLATFORM
Using this feature, you can draw municipal authorities’ attention to problematic and/or dangerous places along cycle routes. Simply position a pin on the street map and provide a brief explanation of the reason for your report. The information is automatically forwarded to the responsible municipality which can then take the appropriate action.

This app needs to know your current position during tracking. Your phone’s GPS is used to determine this, which may cause your phone battery to discharge faster than usual.
Android devices use the so called “doze-mode” as power saving function. The doze mode may cause problems while tracking. In this case the location services don’t run in the background while the display is turned off.
You can deactivate the power saving function in the settings of your device: “Settings/Battery… or “Settings/Device/Battery…” (device dependent)
However there are power saving modes (“Deep Sleep”) which can’t be turned off. The Deep Sleep Mode may be activated automatically by the operating system when the display is tuned off. This can’t be controlled by the user. The Deep Sleep Mode can terminate the app while tracking although the doze mode is switched off. This issue especially occurs on Huawei (and some other Chinese manufacturers) devices.
In this case you can enter your km manually.
On older devices, delays may arise when the Start/Stop button is pressed.
Please contact us directly via email should you experience any issues with the app (firstname.lastname@example.org). Ideally, please also include a screenshot and details of your operating system and device model in your message. This will allow our developers to make targeted improvements.
