Match riders to the routes that suit them best

Current Needs

The Project

CycleReady makes it easy for bikers to find routes in San Francisco that suit them best.


Our goal is to help:


  1. Hesitant bikers get the hang of urban biking by providing information and tips on the routes nearest them

  2. All riders easily access bike info, swap tips, and advocate for their favorite routes


We are currently building a web app that features profile pages for San Francisco's most established bike routes.

"I love the mobility of biking and can't wait to get to know the city by riding around more."
Sharu, newbie rider

Recently moved to SF. Unfamiliar with the city and not sure how to get around. Grew up riding in the suburbs. Would feel more comfortable avoiding high-traffic routes but would get lost navigating streets on her own.

"I'm pretty careful, but I'm also in my own world; I love to de-stress riding with my headphones on."
Roy, expert rider

Likes to ride on his own or at the head of the pack. Gets frustrated having to improvise when a bike lane ends or at a tricky intersection. Is vocal in the push to expand the city's bike infrastructure. Loves guided rides when travelling.

"I've had friends and friends of friends who have been in accidents while biking."
Alex, newbie rider

Unsure how to get started, from buying a bike to planning trips to preventing theft. Safety on the road is a primary concern, with traffic, absence of bike lanes, and one-way streets at the top of the list.
