We are pleased to announce that Simon, lead developer for CycleStreets, has reached the shortlist for the East Anglian section of the TalkTalk Digital Heroes Digital Heroes awards!

If won, this would be worth £5,000 of much-needed funding for CycleStreets, an OpenStreetMap-based project.

* Please vote for Simon as our ‘Digital Hero’ if you like CycleStreets, and help us get CycleStreets some funding!

If you know others who have used CycleStreets, please do ask them to vote too ( – but obviously please do not spam).

In terms of funding more generally, we will shortly have a donation form available on the website to help with CycleStreets funding more generally, in particular for server costs. If you have any suggestions for grant-funding bodies to which we could apply, we would also be interested to know – do drop us a line.

Thanks to everyone who has given any help with CycleStreets – and indeed OpenStreetMap – so far.

CycleStreets Ltd includes a not-for-profit clause in our governing documents.

P.S. We’ve been working on some routing improvements, including hills recently. Simon will be along on this blog soon to say more about this, in a new series of ‘behind the scenes’ routing blog postings.
