Abstract: Modal share of cycling is growing; however, information services are to be significantly improved. Our research aim was to reveal, how the available real-time data can be used to support bikers and to ease decision making by provision of personalised information. We have identified the categories of biker information services and then the route planner applications have been analysed in order to point out the exemplary solutions. The attributes of mobility and information management, as well as their correspondences have been revealed in order to develop appropriate information services. We have carried out a questionnaire survey to identify bikers' habits and expectations towards information services. An analysis method has been elaborated which is applicable to determine the correspondences between mobility and information management attributes. The results are to be applied as bases during development of adaptive, personalised information application aiding decisions.
