Since we launched in June this year we have been building our wonderful community and connecting with 1000’s of cyclists, triathletes & great companies. During this 6 months we have received loads of positive comments from you on what you love about the site and encouragement for us to keep going and achieve our targets. We also have been getting plenty of great ideas from you on how we can make things even better. Over the last 8 weeks we have been taking these ideas and starting on our next major update which has kept us busy while keeping on top of supporting the existing customers. With partners like British Bike Hire & the charity Cyclists Fighting Cancer we have plenty of motivation and support to get the changes in fast!
So what are these changes and how will they improve what we had originally built?
- Simpler. With quicker routes to get to what you want to do most. We have worked through all the customer journeys you do most and listened to all the problems or delays you encounter and improving each and every one. 24 of them in total!
- Smarter. With more data to make uploads as fast as possible we minimise the amount of information needed to create an advert. We have added 2,000 cycling clubs details to our database of Triathlon clubs and the full specification of over 35,000 bikes with all their technical information.
- Smoother. Less bugs and more sexy web stuff our team lead by James have been working on all things SEO and UX and a whole host of other acronyms that make everything slick and built to make worth going online.
We are working on all these changes now aiming to go live before the end of the year and make sure 2016 really smashes it.
