Glow-in-the-dark bike lane opens in Poland

Increasingly, the bicycle has emerged as a transport alternative beneficial to both the environment and the health of those who use it on their daily commutes. As the number of skinny fans grows, so are the investments in new technologies that make life easier for cyclists.

Proof of this is this newly opened bright bike path at Lidzbark Warminski in northern Poland. Solar-powered and made of synthetic material, it can be illuminated for ten hours straight.

This brilliant idea is not quite new: in the Netherlands, for example, there are already since 2014 bike lanes that glow in the dark; but unlike the Polish proposal, which uses solar energy, they are only lit thanks to electricity.

Although still in the testing phase, projects like this one give us an idea of ​​what the future of cycling will look like in urban space. We look forward to their implementation here as well.
