Exploring urban bike tourism.
Bike-ability is a web-based platform that promotes bike tourism for the enviromentally conscience traveller. Simular to vacation rental platforms, Bike-ability allows users to share, create and explore customized bike routes in urban areas. Born out of my personal love for biking, Bike-ability aims to merge fitness, travel and sustainability within one convenient platform.
