Bike Citizens Route Planner:               

More and more people are using smartphone navigation apps to help them find the best cycling routes. Kingston Council have partnered with Bike Citizens to distribute their cycle navigation app and universal smartphone handlebar mount for free. The mount, known as a Finn comes with a code that allows you to download the local area map, covering the whole of the Greater London Area. To get your free Finn email: info@cyclekingston.net.   

Bike Citizens also provide Kingston Council with data on cycle journeys around the borough. The data allows them to see which are our most popular cycle routes, where local cyclists are coming from and going to and is of great help in planning Kingston’s future cycling infrastructure. So the more of us use the app, the better the data will be!

The app has some useful extra features:

  1. There are local cycle tours already loaded onto the map which you can choose to follow

  2. The app records and displays how far you have gone, average speed, number of journeys etc.

  3. You can easily share your achievements on social media.

  4. The app automatically recalculates should you stray off your route

  5. You can choose easy, balanced or fast routing and can also specify your type of bike
