The Bike Citizens app has been a favorite bike navigation software for many cyclists around the world for several years. It doesn't matter whether you're traveling in Europe or elsewhere and whether you're on a racing bike or a trekking bike: the many functions of the Bike Citizens app help with every bike tour - or simply on the way to the next bakery.
According to Bike Citizens, their app has managed to be the best app for the "bike" experience. With every update - and there are quite a few of them every year - the app is fine-tuned. It is now very quick to use and runs very reliably on the iPhone.
Of course, the app is also available for Android smartphones, which is why I am listing the links to the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store here:
Your profile in the Bike Citizens app is an important tool for every user of the app. Here you can see your profile, your detailed journeys, the overview of your activities and the heatmap in detail. Your unlocked achievements and badges are also displayed here.
In the Plaza of the Bike Citizens app you will find information on cycling issues and events in your region, such as bike-to-work campaigns, petitions, magazine articles and social media feeds. You can individually define your area from ten kilometers to the whole world.
The app is free and that gets loud Bike Citizens stay that way. To ensure that money is still available for employees and app development, there are some premium functions that users can book.
However, there is an area of seven kilometers around the user's location, in which one can use all premium functions for free.
Anyone who downloads the Bike Citizens app can start planning and navigating right away. No registration, no in-app ads, or even a subscription is required.
Premium membership costs EUR 3,50 per month or EUR 28 for an annual subscription. There are no geographic restrictions: Those who have booked Premium can use it worldwide.
