Ianb has an idea for a \"Cooperative Bike Share\" that uses just a few combination locks and text messaging to create a bike share program for local communities. (People at DIYcity Portland are considering the possibility of testing the concept in their city).
It gets me to thinking - what other ways could you use web technologies to make riding a bike around the city easier? How could you use maps, apis, user input, whatever, to support bike riding as opposed to driving?
This is a pretty broad-open question, and submissions/ideas may be widely varied. Ianb\'s idea is inspiring, but don\'t let it guide your thinking too much for your answer.
