The Bicing app has just become more sophisticated. Besides the present features, such as the list of stations and availability of bicycles, the new app offers a host of additional options. These include the distance you covered in your journey, amount of CO2 saved, calories burned, and even the likely level of happiness you gained from your ride (based on the number of endorphins you would have released). The app takes into account the difficulty of the journey and whether it was flat, uphill or downhill.
The Ajuntament has stated that it wants to reward cyclists that use Bicing in a sustainable and healthy way. The app has a gaming element, which begins with gaining points according to goals reached and can eventually have you competing with other Bicing users. For your efforts you can change the points you earn for discounts on Bicing's electric bikes.
By the end of May, they also hope to add a journey planner to the app.
