  • What is Ride Report?

    Ride Report is a new iPhone app for people to share and record their experiences cycling in their city. Using Ride Report is incredibly simple. Ride Report can tell when you get on your bike, and it starts logging your ride automatically! When you're done riding, you'll get notified: 

    You can rate your ride directly from the notification:

    Your anonymous trip rating data will help us quantify your city's bicycle infrastructure. Once we have enough anonymous trip ratings you can use our Stress Map to find low-stress routes.

    Soon, you’ll even be able to get crowd-sourced turn-by-turn directions that guarantee you a safe and enjoyable ride! 

    Ride Report will save your Rides for your reference. You can easily access your Rides within the app:

  • How does Ride Report work?

    Ride Report uses your iPhone's location services to automatically detect and store your bike rides. Using a mix of mapping technologies we overlay your rides on a map of your town.

    When we have enough anonymous trip data for a location, we can show a Stress Map that illustrates low-stress routes and problem areas. Currently, Ride Report Stress Map is only available in Portland, OR. 

    If you're interested in using Ride Report for your city, let us know!

  • What is the Ride Report Stress Map?

    The Ride Report Stress Map is a graphical representation of bike rides throughout a city. 

    The green lines are rides that have been marked as good, while the red lines are rides that have been marked as troublesome. The thicker the line, the more rides that have used this route. You can see problem areas when green routes turn to yellow or orange, so be careful around these parts! By following the green routes, you can find a stress-free ride.

    Due to limited number of bike rides, Ride Report Stress Map is only available in Portland, OR. If you're interested in getting the Ride Report Stress Map for your city, download our app and let us know
