About Bike Citizens

Bike Citizens focuses on cycling promotion, app technology and data analysis for cities. Started with 1,500 Euro the company has been founded in 2011 by two former bike couriers and now employs up to 25 people in Graz and Berlin, having further expansion plans for Europe and the US. Their main concern is to offer people more orientation and safety with their app that includes turn-by-turn navigation, tracking options and voice guidance. The company shares the data they gain with cities and for research projects to improve cycling in cities. Together with municipalities and companies the team designs, develops and communicates tools (e.g. heat maps) to spill the joy of a daily ride through cities to get more people on bikes.
