Solar innovation strikes again as a solar panel canopy has been constructed to cover a bike lane that runs through the center of a highway in South Korea. Solar Car Parks, Anyone?
Here is an excerpt:
Bicycle lanes are wonderful things, often running through bucolic countryside. Or, like this one in South Korea running 20 miles between the cities of Daejeon and Sejong, they can be running down the median of a six-lane highway. And what's really special about this one is that it is covered with solar panels, generating electricity and shading the cyclists as they ride.
One of the major advantages of cycling is engagement within an immediate environment. Cycling is, to a great degree, about remaining connected to what's happening around you.
