Bike paths around the world visualized through user-uploaded videos

The bicycle revolution has been frequently chronicled on Springwise’s virtual pages over the past few years, but it wasn’t until just recently that we came across Netherlands-based Cyclodeo, an effort to provide video documentation of the many routes available to cyclists today.

Cyclodeo lets cyclists around the globe upload videos of their rides onto a Google Map, so others can see exactly what street conditions they might encounter on a particular ride. For each route statistics listed include duration, average speed, elevation and distance. Video captures of Copenhagen are already available along with routes in the Netherlands and New York, among other locations. The video below shows a Copenhagen route uploaded to the site:

The world is increasingly bicycle-focused, and so efforts such as Cyclodeo may be welcomed by those trying to find safe routes in particular locations. Time to help cyclists share their riding knowledge?
