In Indianapolis, bike commuting has increased by 20% over the last 5 years, still, only 0.5% of the commuters in Indianapolis ride their bike to work.
The key barriers to large scale bike-adoption by urban commuters in Indiana and across the world are effort and safety.
We want to make bicycle commuting effortless, safer and the no-brainer choice for all urban commuters in this new decade of climate-change emergency. We would like to pilot this solution in collaboration with commuters, private and public organizations, in Indianapolis.
Our solution is CLIP, a portable device that can be easily rented by commuters and attached to any of the world’s 2 billion personal or shared bicycles to transform it into an electric-bike, instantly. In addition to reducing the physical effort of biking, our mobile-app platform integrated into the device will generate crowdsourced maps of bike-lanes to improve riders' safety.
Switching from cars to bikes for urban commuting, reduces CO2 emissions by a factor of 10. It is CLIP's mission to empower everyone to adopt biking as their primary choice for urban mobility and help move the needle beyond the target of 10% Global Cycling use by 2030 from the current 0,5%, in Indianapolis.
