Bike Superhighway in Denmark

Just came across this article about a new superhighway for bicycles in Denmark. It is an 11 mile path into Copenhagen.

I first ran into this in a New York Times article on July 17.

Being a 58 year old schoolteacher, this caught my attention:

"Susan Nielsen, a 59-year-old schoolteacher, was one of a handful of people taking advantage of Denmark’s first “superhighway” for bicycles on a recent morning..."

This is from a Huffington Post article:

Denmark Bike Superhighway
Copenhagen's bike superhighways are part of an ongoing $47 million project. The city aims to be Europe's first carbon-neutral capital by 2025. 
Apparently the path has pumps along the way, and traffic lights timed for bicycle commuting.
