Surely this bike could prove to be an effective alternative mode of transport, for my immediate commute requirement?
I already had the app installed on my Huawei smartphone, but had not put in payment details — only when trying to scan did it prompt for a payment card. The app confirmed that this was a hireable bike and that it had a decent amount of charge on it — 86km! I could almost get to Oxford with that:. Then, a rescan and the bike unlocked with a click in a couple of seconds. Interestingly, the wheel-lock was quite a small one, not the chunky ones that appear on Mobikes now to try and stop rampant theft of them. Something the bike, battery or the app — not sure!
Unfortunately I quickly noticed the bike loudly jolted with each wheel turn — possibly a buckled spoke or other problem with the wheel — it was not enough for me to abandon the journey, but was not something I would leave before fixing. Later on, something else made a plastic rattling noise at the back of the bike every time I pedalled.
Maintenance or lack of it was a problem with the non-electric dockless bikeshares in London.
I was hoping that the more expensive electric bikes would have a more rigorous repair regime. Maybe they do and I was just unlucky. The initial acceleration boost given by the battery was great — straight across the lights and down to Finsbury Park. However, almost immediately it just felt like a regular bike — there was still a boost at faster speeds, but it felt like it was just countering the heavy battery, rather than genuinely making it easier than a regular bike. There is only one gear, so the only thing you can do other than pedal, is to ring the handlebar bell.
It was undoubtably nice to accelerate up the hill with the battery doing the initial work. I feel more tired out than I would have on my own normal pretty cheap road bike. It took me 22 minutes to get in — exactly the same amount of time as my own bike would have. Certainly my fastest journey on a bikeshare bike in London. I parked my bike alongside a Santander Cycles rack. There was also a Mobike there. The pricing structure means that the temptation to safely jump red lights was strong — much more so than on my own bike.
There are a lot of traffic lights on the route and everytime I hit red on one of the bigger junctions, it will have cost me 15 pence. Unfortunately, it looks like this stopped the Lime app from recording my location — although the clock kept ticking. So, it looks like I only did a 2. The app has then marked the bike as being in the UCL courtyard, not where it actually is which I am showing here as the green pin to the north :. It looks like Lime again used my phone GPS as soon as it could — well after the ride finish — so has recorded the wrong location.
It may be that it will later use any SIM card on the bike to triangulate its location correctly or even its GPS if it has it — I suspect not and snap back to Gower Place. In mitigation — there are very tall buildings here and the street is narrow — so it could be a simple GPS error too. I think electric bikeshare has a place in London. If Google Maps, Transit or CityMapper had told me of these, then surely they would be used more and more effectively.
Get your GBFS feeds out there, bikeshare companies, regardless of if you are mandated to big American cities or not, and let people find your fleet in new and better ways! The juxtaposition was interesting, the two companies competing intensely in some areas of location services e.
The car sensor information drives much of the 5 million updates made every day generally automatically to its global master map and also means that HERE has a pretty good live traffic data stream of its own. They have identified a number of scenarios where this is useful, for example, people from a particular neighbourhood who are all planning to go to a music concert in a specific venue in another part of a city.
As such, it will live or die by the volumes of people using it, hence their big push to have the new app downloaded as widely as possible. One HERE announcement at CES that is of immediate to me — my Alexa Echo Dot is finally location aware, worldwide — it was frustrating that it was unable to give me directions or time estimates, while my Google Home Mini was able to — but Amazon and HERE announced a partnership where the HERE location platform with its routing capability, traffic awareness and huge map and POI database underlying it provides location information in response to relevant queries to Alexa.
I enjoyed the other talks in the workshop too, especially the introduction to flowmap. I had a few hours left after the conference to explore the centre of Paris, so I embarked on a long walk from Forum des Halles to Notre Dame, and then up to Gare du Nord. Escootershares are, at the moment at least, all dockless, rather than being locked in physical stations, and I believe they tend to get taken in by casual workers overnight for recharging. My walk took place between around 6pm i.
Overall, I was impressed both by the uptake of these devices, and the care in which they were left after use. Sort order. Dec 06, Peter Cornell rated it it was amazing. Well Done O'Brien is a believable action her. The book is well written and the action is pretty much nonstop.

For as long as I can remember, I always wanted to be a writer, but it was my Dad, Henry Whitehead, who really fostered my interest in the west. As a security man employed by a large chemical company, he often found himself working the nightshift by himself, and to pass the long, lonely hours he would hand-copy pictures from old Buffalo Bill Annuals and then fetch them home for me to colour in. Duri For as long as I can remember, I always wanted to be a writer, but it was my Dad, Henry Whitehead, who really fostered my interest in the west.
During the day, Dad also made up western stories and dictated them into our old reel-to-reel tape recorder, so that I could listen to them when I got home from school. He even added sound effects as he went along, wiggling his fingers in a bowl of water to give the impression of outlaws fording a shallow stream, or bursting balloons to simulate gunfire. So it's really no wonder that I eventually developed such an interest in the west.
As I grew older, I started reading just about every western I could lay my hands on.
