Ratings and Reviews
Bike citizens is the best!
Five years later better all the time.
Disappointing, buggy, nice try
Downloaded the app and was hoping for a good experience. Managed to avoid the misleading purchase requests and got it working to try before buying. Did one ride, worked great. Tried to use it again, but kept getting GPS position is unknown error. Google Map had no such problem with my GPS position, and since it also does bike routes for free, I’m not seeing the point of this app. I did try to make a big report through the app, but I also got an error. Oops! Seems like my GPS position isn’t recognized when I choose to only share my location when I’m using the app. I love irony, but not from navigation apps.
Helps me find safest routes in Columbus
Columbus, Ohio is full of high-speed, high traffic roads, and gravely lacks protected bike lanes (or bike lanes at all on most streets.)
This app at least lets you find the streets with less traffic. Super useful when you’re trying to get someplace that you haven’t been before and want to know the safest route. As a consequence, it can take you on horrifically uneven brick roads at times, but at least you’re less likely to be hit by a car.
