Cycle in Dublin?
Nowhere to park?
Colm Walsh, of the Dublin Cycling Campaign, writes:
Have you ever arrived at a destination only to be faced with a desert of available cycle parking?
Now you can tell Dublin City Council exactly where you want more bike parking.
Over a three week period (April 9-30) we want you to log the locations where bike parking is scarce, using the Space Engagers app.
Space Engagers is an interactive mapping tool that enables citizens to gather data for social and community projects. It has already been used to map vacant lots for the Peter McVerry Tust.
The Demand-a-Stand project is collaboration between the Dublin Cycling Campaign and Space Engagers to enable our members and the general public to use the Space Engagers app to identify where they would like to see more bike parking.
We will use this to build a heatmap of the most popular logged locations and campaign for more bike parking here. We will also send our data to Dublin City Council.
The Space Engagers app is very easy to use. It is available for Android or iOS and once registered it simply involves taking a picture of where you want more bike parking. You can also use the Space Engagers website to log locations.
Check out the Dublin Cycling Campaign website (at link below) or our Facebook page for more information on how to download and use the Space Engagers app.
