Cyclescape is a Ruby on Rails web application created to facilitate cycle campaigning.

The software has been developed to power the Cyclescape campaigning website, and you can help improve it or take the software and customise it for your own needs.

It is split into two main sections:

  • Reporting a problem: a section open to anyone
  • Managing and solving problems: for campaigners and groups

Cyclescape aims to have the following outcomes:

  • Fundamentally, increased resolution of problems on the street/path network and therefore an improved cycling environment
  • Improved and better-organised working practices by local groups around the country through access to a new tool to help them manage the deluge of cycling problems that they get told about or wish to see resolved
  • Increased reporting of network deficiencies, i.e. increased involvement of local people
  • Increased awareness of problems faced by cyclists
  • Improved working relationships between campaign groups and Local Authorities (a common problem)
  • Increased ability for Local Authorities to justify central government investment
  • Increased demonstration of partnership working between Local Authorities and local people
  • Potentially, consolidation of existing web-based systems, reducing the need for groups to maintain custom-written and highly-specific systems.

Cyclescape is being created by CycleStreets, who run the UK-wide cycle journey planner (at, run ‘for cyclists, by cyclists’. As well as the cycle journey planner, which has planned almost a million routes in the UK, the CycleStreets website includes a Photomap campaigning tool used by cyclists to report problems and good practice, by locating photographs on a map.

Project Development

We use Github for managing development, you can clone the repository, or report bugs there.

Pull requests are very welcome! Additional developer notes are available on the github wiki.


Translations are managed using the Transifex platform. After signing up, you can go to the Cyclescape project page, select a language and click Translate now to start translating.

The words in braces preceded by a percent, for example %{name}, should not be translated into a new language: it's replaced with the group name when rails presents the text. So a German translation of Request membership of %{group_name} would look like Mitgliedsantrag aus %{group_name}

At the moment, the translations are not used by the application, but are useful for custom deployments.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
