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.
Pretty nice educational video about the bike box, AKA: advanced stop line, advance stacking locations and cycling floodgate.
