Strava launches Global Bike to Work Day to help improve cycling infrastructure

by CyclingTips

Cycling commuters who log their rides into the social media platform Strava will be assisting urban planners in developing and improving infrastructure. Strava calls it Strava Metro, and the anonymous meta data is used by urban planning organsations all over the world.

“When we combine our perspective with local government data and research, Strava can be a very insightful partner to urban planners and municipalities that want to promote and improve cycling in their city,” Gareth Nettleton, VP of Marketing for Strava, told Cycling Weekly.

“Your Strava commute counts because every activity has the potential to make a difference to cycling in your area. It doesn’t matter if you ride 1 mile or 50 miles, if you ride to work on 10th May you can be a part of a global movement to make cities better for cyclists.”
