The bike trip project

Hello to all,

I am excited to present the most awesome University project I have ever participated in my life: “The Bike Trip Project”.
It all started when I had to choose the last course, before starting the thesis for my Master’s, in Digital Media Engineering at the Technical University of Denmark.
At that period of time, Andreas, my cycling partner for the past 8 years, was trying to convince me to plan our so far longest bicycle trip; a consecutive cycling tour of 3.000 kilometres route in less than 30 days.
Thus, the idea for that project emerged.
Thanks to the open minded and challenging professors of my department this complex project will become a reality.

The trip:
Starting point on July 5th from Tallin, Estonia and finish in Thessaloniki, Greece.
The planned daily schedule is to cycle ceaselessly day by day, with fixed breaks of 2 hour lunch stops and sleeping for the night right after sunset.

The project:
During the trip we will use quantified-self tracker sensors that measure various metrics, ie: geolocation, active heartbeat and even sleep patterns.
The data collection will be used to compare and visually quantify the trip’s interesting patterns of behaviour and its impact between the two cyclists.

Furthermore, at the same time, as we will be cycling, we will be able to update our location once a day, on a live map, where anyone can see where we are at anytime and follow our journey.
All the analytics of the trip will be presented on our main website, accessible to anyone interested.
Come along to support us and keep us company on this effort by following our exciting bicycle-tour on our website(www.thebiketripproject.com), facebook & instagram profiles and youtube channel.

If you like, share this story with people from all around the world.

Some of the most probable city-stops are as follow:
Tallin, Parnu, Salacgriva, Riga, Bauska, Panevezys, Vilnius, Grodno, Bialystok, Lviv, Kyiv, Cherkasy, Mykolaiv, Odessa, Costanta, Burgas, maybe some folks would like to come along with their bikes or meet with us for a cup of coffee!

Cheers!
