Bike Citizens Navigation

For cyclists, by cyclists.

Bike Citizens is the first cycling app that has been specifically designed to meet the needs of cyclists in urban areas.

What makes our cycling app so special?


Routing Profile

The route navigation feature can adapt to suit your personal needs. Choose between a leisurely, fast or convenient route.

Bicycle Type

The route navigation feature takes your type of bicycle into account. For example, if you are riding a road bike, roads with tram tracks or cobblestones are avoided.

Gradient Profile

Bike Citizens always highlights the route with the most suitable gradient. More or less tolerance will be allowed depending on the routing profile.


The cycling app searches for the most suitable route in accordance with the type of bicycle that is selected and avoids surface features such as cobblestones or unsurfaced routes.

Offline Map Material

Once the map material has been downloaded, you do not need an internet connection to use the navigation tool. This means that your phone battery will last longer and you can avoid high roaming charges when you are on holiday.

Cycling Intelligence

Approximately 450,000 people are helping to create better conditions for cyclists in their cities. How does it work? All cycling routes that are recorded are displayed anonymously in heat maps and are used to assist with urban planning. This is a fantastic reason to become a part of the Bike Citizens Community that will enable you to help shape your city.



The map material on the Bike Citizens cycling app is based on OpenStreetMap, which is a freely accessible geodatabank. The ongoing development of Bike Citizens means we are not just users, but also contributors to OpenStreetMap. What happens if a cycle route has not been recorded correctly? Simply add it yourself on OpenStreetMap.
