Riding: Light Lanes

22 Jan

I’ve always liked the idea of riding to work, shops, movies, anywhere really. We have the perfect climate for cycling, as well as terrible traffic problems and a dwindling supply of fossil fuels. Yet for some reason the imbiciles that govern our city and state have spent more time building road tunnels they can’t afford, rather than seriously invest in safe cycling (and public transport, for that matter, but that’s another post for another time). As a result, the closest I’ve come to cycling in Sydney is last night’s spinning class.

So what’s a rider to do? Like everything important in life, if you want something done properly, you need to do it yourself. So Altitude‘s Alex Tee and Evan Gant came up with the Light Lane: a laser-powered bike lane that projects from follows you wherever you go. So you don’t need to wait for the schmuks on Macquarie Street to get their act together. Ingenious!

Thanks to Two Thousand for the tip.
