We’re excited to be launching the Ringstrasse150 – Ring Ride project. The project consists of a website with information on improving walking and cycling in Vienna and a mobile phone game designed to increase engagement by linking to the website in the game results screen. The website is available here:
We’ll be working on the website in the next few days to finish the German version and improve the content.
The Ring Ride game is available for Android from the Play Store:
Ring Ride Game for Android – (Note game no longer maintained and therefore removed from Play Store in 2019)
The iOS version will be available as soon as it it approved by Apple. (2019 – game was available until 2018, but was no longer maintained and therefore removed.)
We have rethought the project since our original idea for a website that would include mapping of improvement ideas. Instead the website now focuses on being a “one stop shop” for presenting information about how to improve walking and cycling in a city – in our case Vienna’s Ringstrasse. We’ll add learning elements to the website later. The main reason we decided not to include improvement mapping is that many cities already have these websites (including Vienna), so we’ll focus on trying to get people to use these existing websites.
If this project is successful similar websites could be developed for other cities following the same model. Here’s more information about the project and what we hope to achieve.
The goal is to increase support for walking and cycling improvements by creating a game (Ring Ride) that will introduce new people to organisations, activities, ideas and resources for walking and cycling in their cities.
