Create bike routes, share with friends, and discover your local area
Tired of the age old “where should we go”, Foundry’s avid cyclists dreamed up an app that provides riders with an exciting way to explore their city. Bike Around is a social riding app that allows users to select interests and get a custom ride to share with friends.
So, where do we start?
We challenged our developers to create a backend that would parse through the wealth of data provided on Google Places based on the selections of a user. Querying a unique address or store name is a relatively simple request, but for each addtional stop, type of location, and distance to that destination complexity grows exponentially.
Foundry’s development team delivered, marrying the powerful search to the simple and intuitive front-end. The result is a seamless searching and routing experience.
A new way to explore your city
Bike Around takes the complexity out of deciding on how to traverse your wonderful city. Just select a couple of your interests, enter how far you want to ride and the app will create a custom route with unique options every time.
Once you have your preferred route, share with your friends with individual directions to your first location. You can zig-zag across the city, blast point-to-point, or lolligag on a loop of destinations. Bike Around helps build your adventure.
Create a Ride by selecting your interests as well as how much time and distance you want to cover.
You can replace certain stops, or refresh your whole route. Once you’re set, just ride to your location, and the app will automatically check you in.
Share your experience with friends via a simple code. Riding together is always better, invite as many you’d like.
Close to home
We created Bike Around because we saw the opportunity in our own community. Based off the people we rode with, supplemented with extensive user research. Our team is always engaged, finding new opportunities every day to grow and improve our community.
