From the Bicycle Victoria website:
- Rider behaviour.
- The main routes utilised by riders.
Whilst in principal I have no issues with City of Fremantle encoruaging the use of such applications, I have serious concerns about the City using this information for “planning and development” purposes. This is hardly rigorous data collection on cycling behaviour; it ignores those cyclists who choose to use other computers (e.g., Garmin Edge 800) or who use other smart phones (e.g, Android phones) or other applications (e.g., Endomondo).
What would be much better is to see the City of Fremantle installing traffic counters at stragetic locations to capture critical data on cycling use and then to use this data to put in place better cycling infrastructure.
