Writes very small test files to disk that can be used to test the package. The entire package works by reading zip-compressed data files provided by the various hire bicycle systems. This function generates some equivalent data that can be read into an SQLite database by the store_bikedata() function, so that all other package functionality can then be tested from the resultant database. This function is also used in the examples of all other functions.
