Glow-In-The-Dark Bicycle Paths — Wouldn’t This be Great in the Pike District?

A luminous blue cycling strip, which can be found in the north of Poland, is made from a synthetic material that can give out light for up to ten hours at a time once charged by the sun throughout the day. This version is entirely dependent upon solar power and is still in the testing phase at the moment.

Dutch artist and designer Daan Roosegaarde has created a beautiful and innovative glowing bike path that, when illuminated at night by glowing pebbles and LEDs, looks like Van Gogh’s famous Starry Night painting.

Innovative British company Pro-Teq has created an interesting idea for paving park paths called ‘Starpath.’

These striking self-illuminating paths are created by giving them a coating of Pro-Teq’s proprietary path surface, which absorbs energy from UV light and emits it. At night, this makes for a lightly illuminated path that helps pedestrians and bicyclists follow the path.
