Ready to add biking to your wellness repertoire? Meet Ride Report

Like walking, biking is a fun mode of transportation and a great addition to any wellness, fitness, and team building program. However, most bike encouragement initiatives require a lot of administrative effort from participants — most people don’t want to log their trips on a website or remember to push start/stop on a tracking app.  Ride Report’s free app, removes this burden on participants while providing a fun platform that includes stats, badges, and rewards for riding a bike. The app runs in the background and automatically senses when a person starts and ends a cycling trip, so all a participant needs to do is ride in order to have his/her trip count.

Ride Report can provide custom in-app rewards, incentives, and tracking of people participating in transportation demand management and wellness programs, including detailed analytics on routes taken and barriers to cycling. Cities use the aggregated data collected through the app to inform planning and implementation decisions to make biking safer and more comfortable. Ride Report users have logged more than 500,000 bike trips for more than 2,000,000 miles, and the app has been used as part of encouragement and tracking campaigns in more than 200 cities worldwide, from Portland, Oregon to Turino, Italy. Their office is also down the hall from Walker Tracker HQ — small (walkable/bikeable) world!

    Hello, does ride report count if you are spinning on a stationary bike? I am guessing maybe not. We do get a readout on the cycle. How does a bike ride equate to walking steps?

      Hi SheltieNo1 –

      Walker Tracker programs have the option to turn on the activity converter in their program, where folks could track stationary bike and have them convert to steps. Click here for a handy study that gives estimated steps based on time/activity.
