Dutch consider heated cycle lanes

2 posts in this topic

Towns in the Netherlands are considering a proposal to heat cycle lanes to encourage greater use of bicycles in winter.

The scheme proposes to use geo-thermal energy to prevent ice forming.

The idea has been provisionally costed at 20-40,000 euros per kilometre (£26-52,000 per mile).

But the man behind the proposal, Marcel Boerefijn, said there would be savings from fewer accidents, less salt needed to grit roads and reduced car expenses.

Wow, that is simply amazing. I do almost everything with my bike, and how much would I love heated bicycle lanes over here in Berlin.

I admire the Dutch for their love of the bicycle, and that it is so well respected over there.
