Cyclists are being urged to share their routes to help make Glasgow more bike friendly. By downloading a new mobile phone app, cyclists will provide data to improve the city’s cycle network.

Future City Glasgow has launched its new Glasgow Cycling app which allows cyclists to submit data about their routes, distances travelled, times taken and average speeds. This data will help create an accurate picture of how cyclists travel about the city and ensure future investment is made in the right places. The anonymous information will be available for free on Future City Glasgow's open data website

In addition, cyclists will also be able to rate routes for example on how flat or off-road they are. This will be available to other cyclists, so they can then use this information to plan their own journeys according to their fitness and confidence levels.
