The Covid-19 pandemic has led to a huge increase in bike and e-bike sales, with cities across the UK and the rest of the world realising the need to improve cycling infrastructure. But cities don’t always have access to the best data to support their decisions. Here at See.Sense, we want to help make a difference. We want to make you more visible when you’re riding but also make your ride experience visible to those designing the roads you ride on.
SHARING YOUR CYCLING INSIGHTS
When you opt-in to share cycling insights in the See.Sense app, you’re helping us map your city in greater depth than ever before. Our lights detect where you swerve, brake, and hit potholes; all things that negatively impact your experience. So, when you opt-in to share your ride insights, you’re improving the chances that your own future rides are improved, along with everyone else cycling in your city. Not to mention, the more you ride, the stronger the case is that your city needs to listen to the insights you provide and make smarter decisions.
We were delighted to be featured on BBC Click recently for their 'On Your Bike' segment. The piece explains how and why See.Sense cycling insights are being used to transform cities for cycling.

The @seesense_cc lights collect data as you cycle around, which can be used to help city planners make streets safer, by analysing speed/braking/swerving/road surface/potholes/accidents. 2/6— Jonathan Coates (@coates_jonathan) July 16, 2020
