User Experience

Logging Trips

On the day of the ride, log onto the website. A bookmark, homepage or desktop icon makes the experience even faster. 

Provide simple trip details: miles biked, destination and other modes used (bus, tram, etc.). 

Mileage and other modes contribute to community and personal stats but won't affect your incentive (providing you bike more than 2 miles). 

If the trip is the same as your last trip, the log is a 1 click and can be completed in 2 seconds.

Your Trip Stats

Your travel log compiles your total miles, countdown to next incentive, and general impact of your biking. 

The travel stats are:

  • Total miles logged.
  • Average miles per trip.
  • Total trips logged.
  • Trips to next incentive.

The impact stats are:

  • Total calories burned.
  • Average calories burned per trip.
  • Gallons of oil saved.
  • Savings over driving.
  • Total CO2 saved from the atmosphere.
The citations for the impact stats come from the US Bureau of Transportation Statistics, AAA, LiveStrong, and the Encyclopedia of Earth.

News & Alerts

At the center of the page, members see communications: road alerts, weather, construction, events, discounts, contests, and other news. Given the multitude of bike news in the region, this site's News & Alerts narrowly focus on information directly relevant to OHSU riders.
