The See.Sense smart cycling project with Cycle My City is a pilot scheme which helps us collect valuable insights into the riding behaviour of people who cycle regularly in Portsmouth.
We’re seeking enthusiastic people to join the Cycle My City Way Makers riding community, with a unique opportunity to boost their cycling experience. We have a limited number of the award-winning See.Sense ICON3 rear light. If you’re selected for the project, you’ll attach the light to your bike for a year. The light will not only get you noticed in the dark, but it will also help us gain anonymous information about popular routes, distances, ride frequency, average speeds and road conditions by tracking your regular rides. This valuable information will help us create a better, safer cycling network for Portsmouth.
Data from the See.Sense ICON3 rear light is recorded via an app which you can download via your smartphone. You’ll be able to track your progress and receive updates on your performance, including the distances you travel, the number of trips you take, your average speed, road conditions and near-misses. It also records the calories you burn, and the fuel and C02 you save by cycling instead of using a car. Special settings allow the light to work in the daytime, and sensors will alert you if your parked bike is being tampered with. It will also notify a loved one if you experience a collision or fall.
To discover how the See.Sense ICON3 rear light and app work, visit See.Sense | The App – YouTube where you’ll find a number of instructional videos, including customer experiences and ‘How to’ guides.
To register your interest, contact email@example.com. We’re looking for people to make up a representative sample of the city’s population, so we’ll ask you to complete a short survey. The survey closing date is Tuesday 5 December. If you’re successful, we’ll send you instructions on how to set up the light and app and we will deliver the light to you. Read the terms and conditions.
