Bedno.com/bike : "Social Cycling System". Mobile tools for bicyclist masses.
Bedno.com/bike facilitates large bicycling events by broadcasting route, map, chatter, weather and more, for smartphones and text messaging. It also serves personal features such as ride recording, directions and points of interest.
Bedno.com/bike (formerly Chi.Bike and MassUp.us) began years ago (now in its sixth major version) to address shortage of Critical Mass printed maps by making them available online for iPhone and similar users, and as a communications supplement to the World Naked Bike ride. The system provides quick flyer views, turn-by-turn cues, and monitors text chatter broadcasting location en-route. It also gives weather, archives, etc all optimized from many years experience developing for mobile devices.
It looks like a very interesting site that could be useful then again it might not be. I don't know why andrew is being criticized here. We should be happy that someone is making an effort to assist the cycling community. Sure everyone might not have a web enabled phone but that reason alone shouldn't preclude one from making a tool with the talents they do have.
Honestly, I'm surprised Howard is critiquing this. Aren't you a person who constantly says "do something, don't just talk." Andrew did something. It doesn't hurt anyone so just don't use it if you don't like it.
