Flare Cycle

Flare is a smart bicycle light and integrated app that allows riders to map data on the quality of our road surfaces and infrastructure.

Aimed at regular cyclists who want to make a difference on our roads, riders press one of the three buttons when they come across a problematic roach or piece of infrastructure. This drops a pin on a map on the Flare app. This map is available to the public and local authorities in order to focus their attention and resources, put pressure on decision makers to make change and allow cyclists to judge a route for hazards. Flare is a tool for regular cyclists that allows them to become roaming, data collecting activists with the push of a button.
