Hovenring: It’s Like a Spaceship Roundabout…for Bikes

 

Leave it to the Dutch to nail great ideas in bike commuting. Hovenring is a suspended bicycle bridge located in Eindhoven. Check out the video below: http://youtu.be/LwyV9o5ILF0

 

The award-winning design makes it look like a spaceship—a spaceship of awesome! It protects the safety of cyclists at a busy intersection by separating them from oncoming cars. Now drivers don’t have to complain about cyclists impeding traffic and cyclists don’t have to fear for their lives. Kudos to the Dutch for once again showing us how planning around bike safety should be done.
