Bicycle commuting study

October 4, 2012

Do you ride a bike? If so, we need your help.

The Department of Health and Exercise Science at CSU, the City of Fort Collins and CanDo (Coalition for Activity & Nutrition to Defeat Obesity) are partnering to conduct research on the routes bicyclists use in Fort Collins for transportation and recreation. Whether you're an avid cyclist or an occasional commuter, the routes you choose provide valuable information to help determine the type and location of bicycle infrastructure for future projects.

Get started

Track your rides on your phone and help shape the future of bicycling in Fort Collins. To get started:

  1. Download the free CycleTracks app for your smartphone
  2. Carry your phone on your ride
  3. Start logging and saving your routes.
  4. Improve cycling in Fort Collins

The CycleTracks app, developed by the San Francisco County Transportation Authority, will anonymously log the general routes you ride. As a bonus, you'll be able to review your trips right on your phone. The data collected is anonymous and your participation is voluntary. No personal information is shared with the study team, only your route data. Log as many or as few trips as you like.
