Short description: Tool to create a bike planner that propose path that have more shade.

Description: Last week, the Netherlands was hit with an unprecedented heat wave where temperatures reached as high as 40 degrees Celsius. When I was about to get on my bike to cycle home in the blistering heat, I thought to myself, “I wish Google Maps could give me directions to cycle home in the shade. In fact, I’d probably be willing to cycle an extra 10 minutes just to stay in the shade.”
