CycleStreets is a community project. There are many ways in which you can get involved:
Feedback from around the UK is extremely valuable to us: try a route and use the feedback form.
Ideally we want it to produce the route that you would take, so try out a known route, and let us know of any errors - however small.
Contribute map data to OpenStreetMap: if you find an error in the street data - you are welcome to fix it yourself! You can add streets if you have a GPS device. Most areas of the country still need some base road data or cycle-specific data (e.g. cycle lanes), or other things like steps. Data you add will appear in CycleStreets within a few days! This introductory article describes how to get started and you can use the Map editor to add information.
Pinpoint photos showing cycling-related problems and good practice on a map
Photos that you add will also be used when planning a journey to show people what the route is like on-the-ground.
We desperately need funding, to pay for hosting and ongoing development costs. Please do donate!
We also need a fundraiser - please do get in touch if you can help.
We get more feedback than we can currently adequately cope with, though we aim to respond to every submission. We are keen to hear from people who can act as a feedback reviewer in their area. We have been building a backend system to make responding easier.
The journey planner is written using Open Source technologies such as MySQL, object-orientated PHP and a whole range of other technologies. Have a look at our Developer section if you would like more information about joining our coding team. There are a whole range of coding tasks needed, from simple interface changes to complex routing algorithm improvements. CycleStreets is due to be open-sourced.
Spread the word about CycleStreets through social media, if you have a Twitter/Facebook/etc. account.
We've always had a 'temporary' design for the site, but would now like to get a full new design. Key problems we want to address are allowing the map to be a larger size, and to make the photomap section much less cluttered. We are seeking funding to part-fund this redesign.
We're releasing an iPhone app for CycleStreets, which will need ongoing development. Also we'd like to create an Android app. Quite a tall order, we know, particularly as we don't (currently) have funding! Let us know if you can help in any way.
