RouteBrew

Bike routing app

Plan a route to breweries, coffee shops, and bakeries. Know where facilities are along the way.

Song "Don't Love Me" by Stulp Fiction.

I love biking. It's what I do when I need to get out for a few hours of me time. Sometimes I go out with a crowd but most of the time it's just me. There's nothing I like more than exploring by bike and visiting coffee shops and bakeries.

The difficulty for me is planning a bike route where I can use the bathroom (everyones got to go). I'm usually on the bike for hours before I get to a destination. So I created RouteBrew to discover new coffee shops to go to and to see where public restrooms are along the way.

This was my first web app and I learned so much in creating it. It uses Leaflet and the data is powered by OpenStreetMaps and a MySQL DB. It was hosted on Openshift's free plan until they sunsetted the free plan, so I took it down. I think about it from time to time and have ideas to improve it, so someday I will resurrect it in one form or another.
