This study investigates how simultaneous flow during cycling experiences can be measured and supported among duos of elderly cyclists, a demographic with increasing e-bike usage. We collected heart rate, cadence, and position data together with participant-generated labels in an experimental study with 21 participants. Data was collected via sensors on the bicycles and on the human participants, as well as via a forward-facing action camera on the bicycle handlebar. Via a post-ride video-based recall method, participants generated labels for each 30-second time window, indicating whether or not they where in individual flow in that time window. The sensor data and participant labels are shared in CSV data. The video recordings are not shared because anonimization was out of scope for the study, however the research team can be contacted in case of interest in these recordings.
