Here is a simple way to attach an Nseries Nokia phone to your bicycle. I’m sure this design can be modified to work with other types of phones. Projects like these are becoming more popular as our phones get more functions like GPS.

I live in Bogotá, Colombia, and the traffic is just insane. Usually most of the time the best way to go around for small trips is using a bicycle, which has been my ride for 15 years now. It was frustrating not being able to follow my trip on Sportstracker, until I read about a cradle ideal for sportstracker here on The Nokia Blog. It was exactly what I needed but according to Mark, it was a prototype and no one knows if it will hit the streets someday. Therefore, I made my own one with the materials I found handy.
