  • Ebike schemes

  • All your other programming for mode shift, vision zero, air quality, sustainability and health!

Three Communication Channels

You can create ‘announcements’ to promote your initiatives and key messages to your target audiences via Love to Ride.

‘Announcements’ are our version of targeted advertisements to promote your work and messages.

These show up in 3 places on the Love to Ride platform:

  1. On the Love to Ride website

Easy Set-up

It’s easy to set up an announcement on Love to Ride. 

Simply choose a: 

  • Headline

  • 1-2 sentences - to give a little more info 

  • A URL - to send people to to learn more

  • Text for the button - that people can click on.

  • The dates - you want the announcement to show up for folks (start and end date)

You can schedule announcements in advance to get ahead on your work.

Targeting the right people

You can choose to have your announcement show up for all of your users on Love to Ride, or you can select specific people for the message to target. 

For example, you might want to target:

  • People who live in a particular area - to promote a new piece of bike infrastructure or get community feedback on a project
  • People who are new to riding bikes - and promote a bike skills course

  • People who need their bikes fixed up - and promote an opportunity to have their bikes fixed up

  • People within particular demographics who are new to riding - and promote a targeted education course or group ride

  • People who don’t own a bike yet - and promote an opportunity to get access to a bike

It’s only natural that we use announcements as a core part of Love to Ride to provide the right information, support, and encouragement to the right users. 

For example, new riders see this announcement.
