New JRC project on social biking

The Social Biking project (S-b) wants to motivate European citizens to be more physically active and use more environmentally sustainable forms of transport. It is an internet based intervention project, coordinated by the European Commission's Joint Research Centre, designed to collect primary data related to biking and social networks and identify the most efficient social-based incentives for physical activity. The project is based on a tracking app for bikers, the BikePrints app, available in Google Play
