The final decided topic of the hackathon is a redway routes app.

Many people expressed a wish to use the redway more, both for environmental and personal reasons, but noted that they had difficulty navigating the redways, planning a route, knowing fun places to visit and knowing where were the safest places to go.

The app will have:

• Map of the redway routes - possibly driven by the API of the openstreetmap or Google Maps API

• Information on the location of great places to visit in Milton Keynes

• Information on bike lock-up points around CMK

• Average busyness, crime statistics and speed of travel on certain paths

• A route planner with lots of filtering to give you the coolest routes

Details at the MK Hackathon (https://www.mkhackathon.org/) site.

The hack will be ran over the 25th and 26th. 10am - 5pm each day.

All developers, designers and Milton Keynes and Cycling enthusiasts welcome.


Our awesome partners JUXT (https://juxt.pro/) will be hosting us at their offices in Central Milton Keynes

500 Avebury Boulevard, Milton Keynes, MK9 2BE

We will be providing stationary and nibbles for the day and we'll probably eat dinner in a local restaurant on Saturday evening.

Please bring your own laptop if you wish to participate in the project design and build.
