Freiker, a performance-based nonprofit, encourages kids to ride their bikes to school by giving kids daily feedback and great prizes. At right you can see our results in real-time. The ridership numbers are automatically collected and transmitted to this site by a Freikometer.
The Freikometer is one secret to the success of the program, the other is our Prizes. Every kid can win an iPod. The combination of the two "secrets" gets more kids on their bikes to school, more of the time.
How it works
RFID tags (that doesn't include any personal information) are placed on the helmets of the kids riding to school. As they pass under the Freikometer, which is just an RFID reader -- the tag is recorded.
