Abstract

The Danish Cyclists Federation recently released a web-based, bike route-planning tool, Cyclistic, designed to facilitate cycling amongst tourists in Denmark. To test the software's usability, we compared Cyclistic to other route-planners, interviewed 25 tourists about their biking needs, and conducted a usability study with 16 tourists. As a result, we identified major aspects of Cyclistic that could be modified and additional features that could improve the usability of the software.
