Brief Description UrbanCyclers is an urban cycling app for Android and iOS. Its key features include cycling route planner (as of now for Prague, Bratislava and Berlin), turn-by-turn navigation that allows for combining biking with public transport, and route tracking that is linked to a system of rewards and community experience sharing. The routing engine is based on state-of-the-art artificial intelligence algorithms that allows for setting preferences for several criteria including safety, comfort and speed.

INHERIT Perspective This app has been chosen because it has a clear win-win potential that may turn into triple win. From an environmental perspective, it motivates a switch from car to cycling for daily commuting and reduces emissions, noise and congestion. From a health perspective, it promotes regular physical activity thus contributing to healthier lifestyle, reduces morbidity and premature mortality risks. The social perspective is somewhat less pronounced but cycling is one of the most affordable transport means, and a well-designed and clear app may help users overcome perceived barriers of urban cycling, e.g. by means of route planning and navigation, or community experience sharing.
