Get obsessive about bike routes.

Dutch start-up Cyclodeo has just released a new collection of geo-tagged bike route videos covering the city of San Francisco. The route videos build on an existing database that includes Eindhoven, Amsterdam, Copenhagen, and New York City.

The 92 videos in the San Francisco collection offer virtual bike rides through areas like the Golden Gate Bridge, Market Street, and much more. 


Cycling on the Golden Gate Bridge 

As Cyclodeo founder Samir Bendida told Fast.Co Exist, Cyclodeo will probably be most useful for new riders, tourists, and people who'd want to explore a new city through a virtual bike. It could also help urban planners and bike advocates compare bike infrastructure across different cities.

Many of the videos so far have been captured by Bendida himself. But now the company is inviting cyclists to “unlock their own cities," either by requesting Cyclodeo coverage there or contributing geo-tagged bike ride videos themselves.
