SmartCity Bærum and Bærum Municipality joined the ECC in 2014.
The challenge is open to all people living in participating cities, or travelling to/from those cities for work, study or other reasons.
All journeys made by bicycle instead of other means of transportation (such as car, motorcycle or any engine powered vehicles) are accepted. As an example: journeys to and from workplace, school, to shopping, to go to the cinema, etc… are valid journeys. Sport activities are not accepted.
ECC used the sportsApp Endomondo to track the journeys, either by using a smartphone with an embedded GPS system, input manually data about your route on the the Endomondo website or import a .gpx file with your journey created with another GPS tracking system.
At the end of the competition the cities will get a heat map – with all the cycle route – anonymous of course.
