  • We've built an app called PedalMania. \n
  • It helps Londoners to get out and about, and get a healthier lifestyle, using BorisBikes.\n
  • At the same time, if we can get people to move bikes from full docks\n
  • To emptier docks\n
  • Boris can spend less money on doing this.. And Londoners improve their health at the same time.\n\n \n
  • When you open the app, it asks you to sign in using Twitter.\n
  • Then confirm that you’re ok for the app to connect to your twitter account\n\n \n
  • You’ll see the welcome screen, and the app works out your location, using GPS.\n
  • So, it knows where your nearest docking station is, and shows you a map of how to get to it.\n\n \n \nWhen you get to a docking station, the challenge begins. \n\n \n \nYou are given a choice of three possible docks to pedal to. Some will be harder than others, so will earn more points.\n\n \n \n\n \n
  • You choose a destination, and start the challenge.\n
  • You have to take a bike from the dock, and pedal it to the other dock within 25 minutes.\n
  • We’re using openstreetmap to do the maps here, you can zoom to get a better sense of where you are\n
  • When you get to your destination, your points are added to your account, \nand you can see how you're doing compared to other players.\n
  • \n \n \nEventually, points could be converted into credits for use on the Barclays Bike Hire system.\n\n \n \nSo by cycling in your spare time, you would earn credits for “real” bike journeys when you needed them.\n
  • So, give it a try, \nadd us on twitter, \nand please let us know what you think!\n
