Bike-related Web site/app
« on: August 01, 2015, 12:26:10 am »
I've been thinking about creating a bike-related Web site and app for some time now. I've even bounced the idea off the Adventure Cycling staff, who referred me to
some existing apps. But none of those do what I want, exactly.

The Web site and app would be aimed at both recreational and touring cyclists.

I have technical skills. I'm looking for others who might be interested in collaborating on this project, from the ideas side and/or from the tech side.

I'm thinking of crowdfunding the idea to start.

If interested, please respond and I can give you a fuller description of what I have in mind.

I created a bike touring website in 2007.  It was designed so that people could enter information they discovered that was useful to other bike tourists.  But, they didn't. Instead, I started entering information myself.

Does your idea require others to provide information?

There will be an app as part of this, which will make it easier to enter information. That's one of the things I think will differentiate what I'm trying to do.

A touring cyclist may have only intermittent access to the Web, but has continual access to a phone or tablet carried on the tour.
