Germany Opens Part Of A 100 Km Bicycle Superhighway

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 everyday.

The picture above the article is very clearly nowhere near this bicycle highway. The Ruhr area has no alpine mountains..
