The Longest Aerial Bike Path In The World
Aerial bike path

In Xiamen, China, bikers can now ride for nearly five miles on an aerial bike path.

Eight years ago, middle school students in Xiamen, China, proposed a new design for an aerial bike lane for the city, suspended under an elevated road used for bus rapid transit. The city eventually decided to build it. After six months of design and construction, it’s now open for trial use.

The route stretches almost five miles, making it the longest elevated bike path in the world. It has 11 exits that link to six public transit hubs. If someone doesn’t have a bike, and just wants to get to the next subway or bus station quickly, they can rent one of hundreds of bikes provided on-site; the bikes can also be dropped off at other locations throughout the city.
