Helping Create A Brighter Future For Cycling. 

Have you ever been cycling around your local area and noticed a bike lane that just seems out of place? Or worse, experienced a close pass or dangerous obstruction? Not to mention the added urgency with the global pandemic for the much needed safe space for active travel.

#SeeSenseReport

Here at See.Sense, we were proud to launch #SeeSenseReport at the start of June 2020, which is a campaign in response to the covid-19 pandemic and crisis for cycling infrastructure. #SeeSenseReport is our new, free app feature (open to all cyclists, not just See.Sense light users) that is designed to empower cyclists to make reports about the location of issues related to their ride, including close passes, collisions, potholes, obstructions or something else. 

HUNDREDS OF REPORTS, AND COUNTING

Since launching, we have had a fantastic response to the feature, with hundreds of cyclists reporting issues they have faced and pinning where exactly these problems are. The image below shows the reports since launching, but there is also a link to the live dashboard (updated daily) at the end of the article.

We would like to say a big thank you to the cyclists who have already actively made reports to help make their roads safer during the crisis & beyond. We would also like to say thank you to everyone who has helped spread the important word about the report. 

In The News

The launch also attracted some fantastic press from BikeBiz, road.cc, Cycling Weekly, Cyclist and more. 

NEXT STEPS - INFRASTRUCTURE REQUESTS

We want cycling to become the natural choice for journeys and for fitness. So we aren't stopping the campaign here! The next stage will be to release the Infrastructure Requests feature (coming very soon). This added feature will allow cyclists to report the location of where they would like infrastructure or facilities improvements. More information coming soon.

HOW YOU CAN STILL GET INVOLVED

If you have been cycling recently, but you haven't yet got started with making a report then why not get involved and map where you have been cycling on the dashboard.

  •  View The Dashboard (Desktop only) here.

We look forward to providing you with regular updates on the progress of reports made and importantly the decisions of transport planners to help improve cycling infrastructure and conditions for cycling for everyoe, throughout the pandemic and beyond.
