Cyclehack Luxembourg City 2016

Thanks to Cycle Luxembourg, I was privileged to help with the preparation of the first Cyclehack in Luxembourg City. A very nice experience from the inside, where a group of very busy people have managed to do everything; also it was a bit discouraging because it was during the National Holiday weekend and many people decided to travel for an extended weekend before the beginning of the holiday season.

Back to the topic, the event took place during the whole weekend (from Friday the 24th of June to Sunday) at the Rotondes. Friday evening and Sunday afternoon were opened to the public and the rest of the weekend only to participants.

We displayed and sorted the collected ideas and barriers over the last few weeks:

The cards are available on the gallery.

A bit of brainstorming, and a few minutes later, some ideas were selected and put on the old school board:

And the vote started, each participant chose 3 suggestions from the list; ironically, the most voted was:

And this ended up with three projects (at that time), forming three groups:

  • screw bikes as we replaced the F word: an ad campain to promote cycling by showing car inconveniences,
  • the power of wearables, where a GPS based T-shirt was displaying the cyclist’s speed and the average car speed; and
  • Hack Space & Time – Rethinking mobility planning in Luxembourg based on a merge of three different proposals.
  • On the next day, another idea came up as there was some spare time; the Black Box – the (in)visibility check.

Some journalists came for a visit:
