Bike Citizens Navigation

For cyclists, by cyclists.

Bike Citizens is the first cycling app that caters to the needs of cyclists in urban areas and won’t let you down when you’re planning a ride in the countryside.

What makes our cycling app so special?

Multi-stop route planning

Plan your route with as many stopovers as you like and choose the route suggestion that suits you best.

Bicycle Type

The routing takes your needs into account. You can choose whether you prefer to ride on asphalt (e.g. when riding a roadbike) or whether you ride an e-bike and therefore accept higher gradients.

Elevation Profile

Bike Citizens always shows the route with the ideal gradient. Depending on the routing profile, more (e.g. e-bike) or less tolerance (e.g. city bike) is allowed for gradients.

Available worldwide

The cycling app is available worldwide. So you can get started right away, no matter if you live in Vienna, Paris, London, New York or outside of the big cities.

Online & offline function

After downloading the app, you can immediately start online route planning
and navigation. If you want ensure app funcionality even without Internet connection or want to avoid roaming costs, you can also download a map and use it offline (Premium membership).

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.

OpenStreetMap

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.
