BABC Awarded $15,000 SF Foundation Grant for iBikeChallenge Program

The BABC was awarded $15,000 to create the iBikeChallenge web and iPhone application to promote bicycling trips throughout the Bay Area. The iBikeChallenge is an online competition that encourages users to bike for everyday transportation by tracking the total benefits to their budget, their health and the environment. The iPhone application will track users trips which will generate data that will be used by transportation planners to improve the network of bicycle facilities. The goals of the program are to increase the number of bicycle and trips throughout the region, improve bicycle planning by providing more accurate information about cyclists route choices and measure the impact of increased bicycle travel on the environment and public health.  Check back for updates on the progress of the application which we will be launching in May.
