As a cyclist I run into a lot of issues everyday that are crying out for an innovative digital solution. One of my pet hates is arriving at a new destination, lets say somewhere busy like Central London, and being unable to find somewhere to park. Wheeling your bike through busy streets, narrowly avoiding tourists as you hunt for a bike park is much less than ideal.
I wanted to find a way to put an end to the endless hunting, and build a database of bike parks across London.
I began the project by sketching out the basic features. I wanted users to be able to locate themselves on a map, look ahead to their destination, add bike parks to the map and understand the level of nearby bike theft.
