Velo-City 2019 – Smart Pedal Pitch

Back to News, Blogs & Events

The Challenge:

Seeking the most innovative and market ready smart cycle tech solutions to shape the future of cycling in cities.


The Opportunity:

There is serious ambition to scale up cycling in cities across the world. It will require major investment in cycling infrastructure, increased promotion of cycling as an option, radical policy decision making, and a step change in attitudes to cycling in cities. We also believe there are a number of short term improvements possible through the application of smart, low cost innovative and scalable technologies.


In line with our push towards healthier, more liveable cities we are seeking technology and data driven proposals that address the following areas:

a. Seeking Better Data – Better use of cycling data to understand issues


b. Promoting Safer Cycling – Both actual accidents and perception of safety


c. Cycle Security – Improving cycle parking, and reducing bicycle thefts


d. Intelligent Transport System on Cycling – Better integration of cyclists into intelligent transport systems
