Ubikequitous computing: designing interactive experiences for cyclists

Rider Spoke by Blast Theory

This paper, published in Mobile HCI 2009 describes two mobile experiences for people who are  cycling, and the unique challenges that this presents.

Designing a pervasive experience for people who are cycling is different to designing for walking for many reasons, which we describe in the paper (PDF).

The two projects studied were The Sillitoe Trail a mobile experience based in Nottingham, themed around the work of Alan Sillitoe, and Rider Spoke, a mobile game created by art group Blast Theory in collaboration with the Mixed Reality Lab.
