Social Cycle is a collaborative social navigation system for the commuter and hobbyist cycling communities in Raleigh, NC. Members map directions via recommended bicycle routes, roads with less traffic, and bike-friendly shortcuts like parks and greenways. Participants may interact with each other asynchronously through comments
and synchronously as they encounter each other or approach each other along their routes. Riders can also sync it with GPS-enabled mobile devices to keep track of mileage, speed, friends, and favorite routes. New members of the community and visitors may find it more
helpful for wayfinding, while experts or consistent participants might appreciate the social features, safety features, and contribute updates.
