Germany Unveils the First Section of a 62-Mile #Bicycle Superhighway

Cyclists in Germany are getting their own form of the Autobahn. The country has recently opened the first five-kilometer (three-mile) stretch of a bicycle highway that will eventually span over 100 kilometers (62 miles). This special four-meter-wide (13 feet) path differs from a traditional bike lane, which typically shares the road with cars and is separated only by painted lines on the asphalt. The bicycle highway, however, is an entirely separate roadway that’s completely car-free.

Using the bike-only highway is similar to driving a car on an interstate. There are passing lanes, overpasses, and underpasses for crossroads. It also has streetlights and will be cleared of snow in the wintertime.

Almanya’daki bisikletçiler kendi otobanlarına sahip oluyor. Ülke geçtiğimiz günlerde tamamı 100 km’ye varacak bisiklet yolunun ilk 5 km’lik kısmını açtı. Bu dört metre genişliğindeki patikayı, yolun sadece beyaz çizgilerle ayrıldığı ve arabalarla paylaşıldığı tipik bisiklet yollarından ayıran şey, tamamen bisikletlere özel olması.

Bisikletlere özel bu yolda bisiklet sürmek, şehirler arası yolda araba sürmeye benziyor. Sollama şeridi, üst geçit ve kavşaklarda alt geçitler bulunuyor. Aynı zamanda sokak lambaları var ve kış aylarında karlar temizleniyor.
