Bicycle Pathways Are Common, But a 100 KM Cycle Super Highway? No Way!

You might have seen bicycle pathways in the place where you live. Nowadays many people are going to the office on bicycles only, which is recommended to reduce vehicular pollution and good for you heart.

But what they are doing in Germany will blow your mind. Germany is taking its famous Autobahn to a whole new level by making one for cyclists. You heard me. They’re on the way to build a 100km long super highway for bicycles only, and bike-lovers can already cycle the first five kilometers.

The highway will connect 10 western cities including Duisburg, Bochum and Hamm. It will be built along abandoned railroad tracks in Ruhr industrial region.

According to Martin Toennes of regional development group RVR, around 2 million people living in the area will be able to use this route, which should result in 50,000 cars less on the roads every day.
