With the track hero good and safe motorcycling

The new online tool "StreckenHeld" of the Institute for Bicycle Safety (ifz) goes online! It's all about central information that will make the next tour on a scooter or motorcycle easier, more beautiful and safer. From regional danger points to the next break, the map-based tool provides useful information both before the next trip at home on the computer and on the go via smartphone app. An idea of motorcyclists for motorcyclists. Be part of the whole, germany-wide!

What do Batman, Supergirl and Spiderman have in common? Right, they are committed to the well-being of others. And that's what the Track Hero is all about. You know places near you that can be risky for drivers of motorized two-wheelers? For example, poorly visible intersections, visual obstructions when turning, roll split in the curve? Then show us on! You know great viewpoints, special routes, good places for the next break as well as other POIs for motorcyclists? Place them! You know biker-friendly snack and restaurants, then share your knowledge with like-minded people! Conversely, you can find exactly these things that others have placed for you!

"The highlight of the track hero is that everyone can join in and draw attention to dangerous situations on the road." We motorcyclists greet each other on the way and help each other. Why shouldn't we support each other before we drive? With our online network, we are now providing the right tool for this," explains Matthias Haasper, Head of Research at ifz.

In addition, the ifz places "motorcycle useful" hot spots such as biker meetings as well as locations and providers of motorcycle trainings, so that everyone can quickly and easily find the right motorcycle or scooter training nearby.

"Become a track hero by providing safety-relevant information to other scooter sands and motorcyclists," Haasper said. Every motorcyclist can thus supplement the clearly and clearly structured map and actively participate in shaping it. Intuitively operated, the next helpful "message" is quickly placed and enlarges the ever-growing network for a safe motorcycle everyday life.

On it's time to start. Also, of course, with the corresponding ifz app, which is available for free via the Google Play Store for Android as well as in the App Store (iTunes) for iOS.
