UrbanCyclr (urbancyclr.com) app allows bikers to track their biking routes in the city. The individual routes are added to an aggregated map of the bikers’ community. 100.000 kilometers of biking routes have been collected from individual bikers since the launch of the app in 2011.
SubMap (submap.kibu.hu) is a unique tool to visualize geographic and time-based data on distorted maps. It has a huge potential in coping with data from a physically distributed network of independent sensors.
I found this video on the world-wide-web some weeks ago and I still do not exactly understand the reasons why not designing the cycling highways in a safer way but on the surface.
May be it would boost cycling for longer trips and passing next to the London Eye would give a magnificent position for cycling in general. But high-rising ideas can result in unsustainable implementations, though the concept is interesting but additional projects need to extend the main network’s attraction area by increasing the citizens’ perceived level of safety. Restrict motorized traffic step-by-step to fight against its side effects.
My colleagues often smile on me when seeing newer/bigger/brighter stickers in my suitcase, so now I would like to present you some nice stickers from Budapest, the city with “the biggest Critical Mass” – according to Wikipedia !-)
I hope you enjoy the the historical overview of the Critical Mass Budapest Movement (2005-2013?)
The first Critical Mass Budapest in 2005
“Chuck Norris won’t be here, because he eats cars. But he lets you go out protesting.”
Bike protest on Earth Day, 22 April (Saturday)
“It would hurt me if you would not come. I don’t like to be disappointed.”
The protests quickly became familar get togethers as shown on the sticker from 2007.
“Critical Miss – Ride your bike every working day! R U coming?”
The biggest Critical Mass protest was in 2008.
Several designs were printed.
For many of the citizens Critical Mass means the opening of the cycling season.
“The real car-free day” – bicycle protest transportation
“Choose bike!” – 2010 was the year of the elections in Hungary
in cooperation with the Critical Moms
“You have a bike? What are you waiting for?” September 2011.
“The spring, when you also sit on the saddle” – The last protest was organised in April 2012.
