Cycling is a unique activity, which encapsulates an endless number of benefits, including health and socializing. It is a fun form of exercise for all ages and a great way to actively explore new landscapes and a quick sight-seeing method in urban areas. For many people around the world cycling is the most comfortable and accessible transportation mean to reach their workplace, do shopping or visit friends. Since the invention of a bicycle over 200 years ago, the technological development went a long way of bringing assistance for people. For example, embedded, mobile and wearable technology offer a plethora of interaction opportunities for augmenting bicycles, making cycling more accessible, pleasant, engaging and fun.
The purpose of this workshop is to discuss and explore the design space and interaction methods for technological augmentation of bicycles, helmets, and surrounding environments. The workshop will achieve this goal through a series of interactive brainstorming sessions and hands-on prototyping activities. To address different cycling contexts and challenges in them, the program of the workshop is going to be framed around different cycling-related themes: Scenic cycling, Urban Cycling, Accessible Cycling, Fun Cycling and Remote Cycling.
This cycling event consists of the pre-workshop period and a one-day workshop
