Joyride and the London Cycling Campaign have partnered on a project to trial new data collection technology. We will use the trial to collect information about how families commute around Central London to help us lobby for better cycling infrastructure.
We are looking for parents who cycle with their children to participate in a three-week study. Participants will attach a sensor to their bicycle, which will track location, speed, and crash detection. The data will be anonymised, but publically available for study. Participants should ride most days with their children in bike seats and/or beside them. The study will take place 20 February to 10 March.
If you are interested in participating please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with some details about your commute with kids (including the start/end points).
The sensors use a newly established wi-fi network so trips must take place in the area on the map below.
