Let's Get RenoTracking!

We have been working on some exciting things over here at the Nevada Bicycle Coalition. We all know that creating a world-class bicycle network in Nevada requires vision, persistence, and teamwork. Riding in Nevada requires the support of bicyclists who desire both enjoyable and safe roads to ride. As the New Year begins, please consider supporting the Nevada Bicycle Coalition and our newest project—RenoTracks.

RenoTracks is a new app developed as a joint project during the 2013 Hack 4 Reno hackathon in order to generate a reliable and accurate method of collecting cycling data from Reno bicyclists. It uses your phone's GPS to record routes, letting city planners which routes are most popular and allows important information about possible problems (potholes, debris or obstructions) to the right authorities for improvement.

The  data collected  from the RenoTracks app will be used to make strategic improvements to bicycle infrastructure. This will make cycling in Reno far more pleasant, building a stronger, safer bicycling community.

There are two ways to support RenoTracks - 

DONATE! - a donation will help us with the hard cost of app development, upkeep, data gathering, promotion and support an upcoming android version.

TRACK! - Download the app and make some of your own tracks!

We hope that you will be able to do both! 

Let's get tracking!
