BikeCityGuide, developed by long time Austrian cycle messengers Daniel (Graz, Austria) and Andi (Vienna, Austria – now Berlin, Germany), is a project to make cities more cycle-friendly for residents and city travelers.
With good local knowledge, using a bicycle as a method of transport is no problem and of course, it’s also the most fun! Without local geographic knowledge, especially city travelers, people often use cars, the metro or tourist buses (=cattle truck) to go sightseeing. This has to change! When using a bicycle, you get a deeper insight and you’re more active and independent!
We created BikeCityGuide, an application available for iPhone and Android that features insider tours, customizable tours and point to point navigation. Along with safe and efficient cycle route calculation, what sets BikeCityGuide apart from other apps are the live voice and visual alerts and offline functionality.
We’re working together with our cycle messenger colleagues around the globe to integrate their local knowledge and develop insider tours in any city. With the goal of promoting cycling, the BikeCityGuide project will soon be available in major cities around the globe.
Look forward to checking out their Solar Powered bags. Two lucky winners will never have to worry about charging up their cell phones again!
