Open Bike is “Yelp” for bike routes. Open Bike collects information about bike routes on qualitative measures such as route safety, difficulty, and beauty to provide useful information to cyclists and government agencies. Open Bike is an interactive mapping platform that allows Front-Range bicycle riders to provide meaningful feedback about the quality of a bike route.
Open Bike was first launched at the Denver Code For Communities Hackathon (http://codeforcommunities.org/), at the time called RadRoutes, with the objective of crowdsourcing the quality of bike routes and helping to create better future routes. The team created the winning app for the event and has continued to build out the project since then.
Open Bike will be presenting at Denver Startup Week and CO Cleanweb is going to help them build a strategic plan, build their product, put together a stellar presentation and help recruit volunteers to reach their objectives.
At the Project Open Bike Kickoff, we will identify how CO Cleanweb can support Open Bike and identifying deliverables for the organization. We are looking for members from all backgrounds, whether you are a technologist, business professional, legal expert, a bicycle enthusiast, or simply passionate about sustainability. Project Open Bike is an opportunity to hone your skills, work with and learn from other talented folks, gain some recognition, and do something meaningful in the process.
Additionally IEEE Greentech Conference will be announcing details of their upcoming event. Contact Tim Weil if you wish to learn more and cannot attend: [masked] .
We hope to see you at the Project Open Bike Kickoff!
