Our new App - RideU - for smartphones that is capable of browsing over 240 municipal bicycle rental services in more than 25 countries. With RideU it is possible to check bicycle availability, find empty bicycle bays and know the general status of the service.

Valencian startup devoted to the design and manufacture of accessories for the urban cyclist and creators of foldable helmet Fuga, Closca Design has reached an agreement with the company SplendidON for the joint distribution of RideU app for iOS and Android devices.
SplendidON, a company founded by Cecilio C. Tamarit, a 17-year old young man from Valencia, has developed an app for smartphones that is capable of browsing over 240 municipal bicycle rental services in more than 25 countries. With RideU it is possible to check bicycle availability, find empty bicycle bays and know the general status of the service. Furthermore, this new app is compatible with the new Apple Watch and with Google Glass.
Currently there isn’t a single app in the market worldwide that allows you to do these type of queries and integrates an augmented reality module that helps you find available bicycles or empty bays for parking away a bike after use. In only few days this App is being used in many countries hightlighting Japan, with 30% of downloads.
At Closca Design we’ve wanted to support Cecilio’s work as a young entrepreneur, still in his College years, and throw ourselves into RideU’s joint spreading and promotion, which undoubtedly will turn into an essential electronic gadget for our smartphone when traveling around the world and using our bikes as our favorite, responsible, environmentally friendly and healthy mean of transportation.
