Germany has opened a bicycle highway of three miles that will eventually cover over 62 miles. This road leads to four universities and 10 different western cities which includes Duisburg, Bochum and Hamm.
And this highway is an entirely separate roadway that will remain completely car-free.

Like a traditional highway, this bicycle highway has passing lanes, overpasses and underpasses for crossroads, and even streetlights. However, cyclists won’t have to worry about trucks zooming by or bus lanes. It’s just a clear path for miles and miles.
In a study completed by regional development group RVR, it’s projected to take 50,000 cars off the road each day.
