Vancouver-based designer Greg Papove created the Whoopdeedoo project to make riders’ daily commutes more enjoyable and encourage people to cycle to work. A ramp was placed in an ordinary bike lane to provide a fun moment and break up people’s routine.

The project was made possible through a grant from pennysmash.ca with help from Vancouverisawesome.com. The bright ramp was designed for cyclists of all ages and abilities, and easily catches the attention of riders and also drivers who can see it from the road.

A centre line was added to help cyclists with orientation when they are approaching the ramp. The flags on the sides offer an element of safety when cycling over the ramp so the user will stay centred and keep away from the edges.
