The Great Bike Lane in the Sky?

Wouldn’t it be simply delightful to have a way to breeze above congested city streets on your bike? Inhabitat brings us this idea, from Bulgarian architect Martin Angelov:

I’m thinking, not so much. Visit the site, and click through the gallery. I admit I can’t understand most of the drawings, but maybe you engineering/sciencey types can.

Are you laughing? Arthur C. Clarke once said in regards to the idea for the ‘space elevator‘ from his book The Fountains of Paradise, which is now being developed, “It’ll happen ten years after everyone stops laughing.”

I have a lot of respect for Sir Arthur, may he rest in peace. If he thinks the space elevator can work, Kolelinia could be the future of cycling.
