Yellow Bike Project Update


We've had an excellent project meeting today at Lasyard House, with representatives from Yellow Bike Company and ML Electronics attending to discuss the final "challenges" with the project.
Yellow Bike Company (YBC) will be launching bright yellow electric and pedal bicycles for hire across the UK this year and the enterprise will be powered by software from Start Software.
The software incorporates a SQL database, Microsoft Access programming, a Windows Mobile pocket PC interface and an interactive booking website - so pretty much covers all of the technologies we use!
To help to publicise the yellow bikes, I'll be riding from London to Paris in the Spring on a yellow bike and had my first ride on one today (but only around the car park). The photo shows Paul from YBC and the bike (not yet in its bright yellow livery) ready for me to test.
