Bike Buddying Light / Mobile App

Bike Buddying Light

Finding a cycling partner might not be that easy.Failing to show up at the appointed or expected time is the major cause of motivation breakdown between the paired partners.
With this design, two randomly paired commuting cyclists can be connected via their smartphones and the designed app mounted on the bike stems.
The app uses the metaphor of bicycle flash light to represent closeness, leading, and following between two sides. The activity is also recorded.
This provides a new way of seeing, being and knowing solitude, a state that we commit to remain encouraged.
