We would like to share the results of ‘Pedala i Reporta’ a citizen science campaign led by the Bicycle Club of Catalonia – BACC using BiciZen. The project has collected incidents related to the state of Barcelona’s cycling infrastructure to advocate for its maintenance and improvement. Find the results here.

The campaign’s objective was to collect incidents related to the maintenance of the cycling infrastructure of Barcelona in its districts. The project specifically targeted incidences related to the paint of cycling infrastructure, the physical separators of cycle paths and the conditions of the floor under the cycle paths.

This has been the first campaign designed and implemented using BiciZen as the main source for data collection. After the collection of the data, the team has also participated on the treatment and analysis of the collected data. We are very happy with the results, and are open to collaborate on more campaigns.
