New Bike Tech: Helping Employees Ride Using the Social Network for Bikes

Thursday, May 28th, 9:00-9:30 am PT

Join Eric Lynn from PeopleForBikes to learn how to get corporate employees riding bikes more often! Eric and his team have spent the past two years developing an app — called Ride Spot — that connects users to vetted regional rides and routes; the larger biking community; and other social aspects of riding, like photos and stories.

During this Online Bike Forum, Eric will share a sneak peak of a new Ride Spot module that helps organizations motivate, incentivize, and track the bike activities of employees, including:

  • Using RideCards and turn-by-turn navigation to help employees go to work by bike
  • Marketing rides by sharing visual stories
  • Rewarding those who ride with an easy to administer system based on mileage and frequency measurements
  • Using data collected by the app to guide decisions

Please join us, and bring your questions!
