Working on a whole new Bikemap has been so exciting for the whole team.
After you’ve achieved it, it always seems easy. While we are busy celebrating, we nearly forget what was behind this relaunch: blood, sweat and tears (or beers in our case). Not to mention a good team spirit and the belief in an awesome product that is loved and shaped by its community: Bikemap.
No wonder, we’re super thrilled to share the result with you.
So what’s brand new?
A whole new design
The new Bikemap comes with a completely new look and feel. Our new design, fully responsive and user-friendly, makes discovering and recording new routes fun and easy – and most importantly, inspires you to go and ride your bike!
But of course we would not sit here and praise ourselves if it was only for the looks 😉
We got more:
Stunning routes where you want to go
You go on a cycling trip to Vienna or another awesome destination? You are longing to find the best routes there?
