The Beltline Bike Shop ‘Bike Rack Locator’ App
The Beltline Bikeshop App, Bike Spot, is LIVE and available to install on your iOS device!
If you know us, you know we love bikes here at Highgroove. Any cyclist in Atlanta has encountered the ‘parking’ headache of looking for a spot, much less a rack to lock to while getting around on two wheels. Bike Spot is a bike rack locator designed to track, record, and locate bike racks around town.
Sounds awesome, right? “But how can I use it?” you ask.
So imagine you’re about to embark on a bike ride, and wondering where the nearest bike rack will be. Here’s how the Bike Spot app works:
- Look for the nearest bike rack at your destination – Simply open the app and allow it to pinpoint your location
- Zoom in/out to find the for the closest rack – More are being added regularly but maybe your favorite rack isn’t included yet. Add it!
- Find a new rack, photograph it – The app makes it easy snap a photo of any bike parking
- Promote the app! – This app isn’t only for Atlanta. Its merits apply in any city, any town, anywhere!
Bicycle commuting in Atlanta grew faster than anywhere else in the United States and its no secret that cycling is a positive, healthy way to get from point A to point B!
We’re honored to have had the opportunity to contribute to this collaborative On The House project between with Hybrid Design, Matchstic and the Beltline Bikeshop! A few weeks ago, we swung by the Beltline Bikeshop to celebrate the app’s completion and to check out the shop. The Beltline Bike Shop is a tremendous asset for Atlanta and Highgroove was excited to lend a hand to such a great cause. At the shop, the take donated bikes and invite kids in Southwest Atlanta to earn a bike of their own through community service. More info here.
