1. Install the app
You’ll be up and running in less than a minute.

LET'S MAKE BIKING BETTER
Riders from Turin to Portland are using Ride Report to make biking better. Every trip you take contributes to your city's Bike Stress Map, which shows the best and worst routes according to real people.
Want to sync your rides to Health Kit and your Apple Watch? Ride Report can do that for you. To get started, tap the Gear Icon, then tap 'Connected Apps'. Once you connect the Health App or your Apple Watch, your rides will automatically sync to Health Kit!
You can use Ride Report completely anonymously without providing any personal information. Your ride logs are stored securely and are never shared with third parties unless you explicitly share them. Ride Report shares some anonymous, aggregate information with cities and other organizations to help improve bike routes and encourage more people to bike. You can learn more on our support website, http://help.ride.report.
Ride Report requires iOS 8.4 or later. Ride Report runs best using an iPhone 5 or newer.
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Ride Report is built to minimize battery drain by using GPS only while you are taking a trip. For most users, you can leave Ride Report running all the time and you won't even notice the impact on your battery. You can also temporarily pause Ride Report from within the app.
This version fixes some issues with the display of trophies and rewards.
Ratings and Reviews
Has serious problems
If you are a serious record keeper, this app is not for you. It doesn’t record the route accurately at the beginning of a ride and just draws a diagonal line, underestimating the distance. Sometimes it starts late, so the starting point is not even right. For a long ride this is not a problem, but the app is more geared toward a frequent rider who does not want to be bothered by turning it off and on between errands. It records all trips, so if you leave your house on a given day, no matter whether you ride or not, it counts that as part of a “streak.” I currently have an 11 day streak, and I only rode my bike 6 of those days. Assigning modes of transportation seems to be random. Car, bus, train, bike, whatever. It records car trips as train trips when there are no railroad tracks anywhere nearby, or bus when it is not on a bus route. It complimented me by thinking I could bicycle at a steady 35 mph (the speed limit) and called a car trip a bike trip, when all my other bike trips were average 10 mph or less. It definitely needs some work. I would prefer it not record all my non-bicycle trips. I’m not interested in keeping track of my car trips. It is called Ride Report.
Good concept, still needs fine tuning
I love the idea of this app and have been using it for about 9 months, happy to see that I’ve logged over 700 rides! Love seeing my mode split over time and even though the trophies are a bit silly I do like it, it’s fun to get some props! Like others have suggested, I did want a middle ground for rating rides so I’m glad “mixed” was added.
The major bummer for me is that it constantly mixes up my travel modes. I do switch between modes a lot — bike/train/ferry/bus — and unfortunately the app has a hard time distinguishing between modes. Which then means if I want accurate reporting I have to go in and fix it, just about every day, which defeats the purpose of a “hands-off” app. I love not having to start and stop the app but maybe it needs some manual control options if it’s not going to track the modes properly.
Also sometimes it doesn’t start up right away. I’m not doing long rides, usually just short 1-3 mile trips to do kid drop offs or run errands or hook up to transit. So if it misses the first 5-10 min of my ride then that’s pretty significant. It would be nice to be able to go in and fix this when it happens though again that means it’s not as hands-off as it could be.
Regardless, thanks for making this and making it easy to connect to other apps and competition programs!
Great concept but issues
I’ve been using Ride Report for awhile (almost a year now) and love the idea of not having to start and stop recording like you do with other tracking apps.
However, there are some major issues with it that are making me rethink Ride Report as my main tracker. The biggest is that it rarely will start accurately recording rides soon after you start. It likes to draw a straight line between your starting point and where you are 10 or 15 minutes into the ride. Because of this I’ll miss up to a mile from every ride. Add this up over a month and it means Ride Report is under recording my total distance by about 30 miles.
I’m going to go with a different app for awhile, but I’ll keep checking in to see whether this issue has improved.
