mybikemap is an innovative map style for bikers. The maps are styled to make local routes more visible, and touristic places are marked with icons. It helps bikers navigating to new places or creating a flexible route. The local community adds the points of interest to trigger tourists and locals to explore more by bike. Although Denmark is popular for cycling, there are only pre-set bike routes. It is much harder to wander around, and find a bike route that fits one’s activity and personal needs. mybikemap is a node network where cyclists can choose their own cycle route.
Inspired by the node network, Møn’s local initiatives form the nodes of a new bike network. On the web map they are marked with icons as point of interest. Bikers can cycle across the island along the points of interest. The icons on the map correspond with signs put up by the locals. In that way local initiates set a guide for tourists. In the future, the map can be expanded for other activities like hiking and horse riding as well.
