“Who is riding when, where, and why?” remains a difficult question when it comes to cycling at the local and regional scale. This fact is surprising given the central importance of bicycle mobility in transforming the transportation sector into a sustainable system and the already relatively high modal share of cycling.

The research project Bicycle Observatory – On the Pulse of Cycling set out to explore possibilities for a multidimensional, temporally continuous observation of bicycle mobility and to build prototypical applications on it. The results of this multi-year, interdisciplinary research have now been nominated for the VCÖ Mobility Award 2021 in the category “Research and Scientific Studies”. Until July 26, the project can still be voted into first place by public voting. Help to make basic research at the interface of geoinformatics, data science, sociology and mobility visible!
