A new cycling App is in the works that will make it easier, safer and more fun for cyclists to navigate Essex County and Windsor.

The new project is called C3Tech (short for City-County Cycling Technology), and is the result of a partnership between the County Wide Active Transportation System (CWATS), the Windsor Bicycling Committee, software experts at Parallel 42 Systems and non-profit Windsor Hackforge.

Through community engagement, including townhall forums and hackathons, cyclists and developers will have the opportunity to contribute ideas, data and code to the initiative.

“CWATS is excited to partner with the Windsor Bicycling Committee in creating a regional cycling app,” said Diana Radulescu, active transportation co-ordinator for the County of Essex. “We want to make it as easy as possible for cyclists to navigate the connections between the active transportation routes in Essex County, Windsor and Chatham-Kent.”

Cyclists can contribute their thoughts and ideas through a short survey and anyone interested can join the Hackforge Discord to connect with organizers, mentors, and developers. Project information and event listings will be updated regularly on the Hackforge website.
