The Bike Hub smartphone app already directs users to bike shops and now people can use the app to locate bike-friendly accommodation.
Beds for Cyclists, a cycle-friendly accommodation website, has teamed up with CycleStreets and Bike Hub to offer cyclists accommodation information on their mobile phones. Cyclists can now find cycle friendly hosts on the CycleStreets and Bike Hub cycle journey planner apps.
Martin Lucas-Smith of Cyclestreets said: “Beds for Cyclists is a fantastic resource for cyclists and to have this information at your finger tips when you’re out on the bike is going to help a lot of tired riders find a good place to stay.”
Sam Howard, marketing director for Beds for Cyclists, said: “I am delighted to combine the accommodation information we offer with the cycle route app market leaders.”
Beds for Cyclist’s hosts also now have local cycle hire providers shown on their profiles. In partnership with the UK cycle hire directory www.cyclehireinfo.co.uk, the three closest cycle hire centres within 20 miles are listed on the host’s profiles.
“It is notoriously difficult in the UK to travel on public transport with bikes and this will overcome that dilemma for many people who want to go on a cycling holiday. Beili Neuadd B&B and bunk house shows off these new features very nicely,” said Howard.
