Bike Videos of the World
Cyclists - before setting off on a bike ride why not preview the route by watching a video of the ride on Cyclodeo?
Cyclodeo allows you to watch videos of bike routes in cities around the world. This allows you to preview how safe or busy a route might be, tt allows you to familiarize yourself with the route and, in hilly cities like San Francisco, it allows you to get a sense of the types of climbs you might have to undertake.
Cyclodeo has been steadily increasing its bike route video coverage over the last few years. Now, thanks to funding from the European Commission and the Soul-Fi acceleration programme, it has vastly expanded its coverage yet again, with thousands of kilometers of new bike route videos.
This new coverage allows you to view mapped videos of bike routes in Madrid, Sevilla, Tokyo, Osaka, Belgrade, Tallinn, Riga, Vilnius, Oslo and Helsinki.
Even if you aren't a cyclist Cyclodeo is a great way to explore cities around the world. For example in this new coverage from Cyclodeo you can view videos of A Bike Ride Around the Imperial Palace in Tokyo, A Long Ride to the Castle in Osaka, A Ride Around the Plaza de Espana in Sevilla and A Ride along the Han River in Seoul.
