A talk given at TEDx EastEnd on how visualizing bicycle journeys helps us understand why we cycle in our cities
Live view of the bike availability in London's public cycle hire docking stations - mapped as a grid.
Compare availability of public hire bikes and spaces over the last 24 hours with the situation one week ago.
As part of a trial for Transport for London, we attached GPS sensors to a fleet of eBikes and visualized their journeys.
What happens when 1000 cyclists ride from London to Edinburgh? And then back again. In just four days.
How do you visualize risk associated with cycling that reflects the tiny probability of incidents?
In 1939, Tommy Godwin rode 75,065 miles on his bike. In 2015 three riders try to break this world record...
Interactive exploration of riders' progress during the 2015 Paris-Brest-Paris randonnee.
When we're not working we like to ride our bicycles. But even then we don't leave work behind...
