Let’s get more people riding

From Sport to Transport is all about showing more people that utilitarian cycling is easy and enjoyable. With the help of our partners and you, the goal is to recruit participants to register on the website - a social platform - which counts your kilometers traveled by bike.  The data collected will be useful for cycling development.

  • Log your rides
  • Set goals
  • Encourage others
  • Keep up to date how your friends and colleagues are going
  • Win prizes

If you love to ride, then let’s spread the love! Show your support for cycling and together we can get more people cycling. Utilitarian cycling is:

  • Efficient
  • Economical
  • Ecological
  • Good for your health - physical and mental
