City slow ways



  • Slow Ways Support

    Hi Ed. I think this is 100% necessary as a future stage in the project. 

    I think a similar approach can be used to identify places that are mapped for their significance but looking at population too. 

    Have you done some drawings?

    The Red Kites did numerous routes in Greater London, including central London, which was fascinating and a very different set of challenges and solutions were encountered to the rural routes. So there's already some expertise in solving this issue.

    Hi Daniel,

    I got as far as putting a few key points on a map and a couple of trial route triangles.

    But I mostly got diverted on trying to come up with a rating for the route's friendliness, combination of how much distance is segregated cycle way, road type & speed limit, which is a heavily manual process but kind of interesting!

    I did have a look at local ward maps for the city earlier and thought maybe a central point of each would be a decent but fairly coarse starting point.

    (Sadly I had to start work again today so time has become more limited again !)

  • Jason Davies

    Which city have you been looking at Ed? Is it Birmingham?

  • Ed Milbourn

    Ha no that would be scary big.

    I'm in Coventry so that's easy for me to consider, bouncing ideas off our "Bicycle Mayor" too.
