Project: Bikesy is an innovative and open bike mapping system specially designed to find flat, safe, and fast bike routes anywhere in the SF Bay Area. It is a web application that works on desktop and mobile and allows users to specify how much they’d like to avoid hills, and also their preferences for sticking to routes that have mostly bike lanes and paths.
The site code is completely open source and available on github. The underlying map data is from OpenStreetMap. Bikesy.com also has an API that is open so developers can easily pull bike routes easily into their own apps.
