DIY Bike Lanes

March 2, 2009

You don’t have to worry about not having a bike lane where you want to ride thanks to two new technologies, Contrail and Lightlane. The Lightlane technology is a bike-mounted device that projects a laser-produced “bike lane” onto the pavement around your bike, so that the automobile drivers have some visible space to avoid (theoretically).  The Contrail technology allows cyclists to make their mark on the street with faint lines of chalk. The rear wheel spins a smooth trail of color onto the pavement as the bike whizzes along. This serves as a notification to drivers that this is where cyclists ride, especially when the cumulative effects of many cyclists leave their impact on the road. Either of these are great ways to improve cycling safety.

    Keep up the great work by encouraging the children to ride their bikes. I know so many parents drive their children to and from school because of safety concerns.Mabe an adult supervised one day 1 hr. bike ride thru a local park, that will encourage the children and allow them to exercise the same time! Lots of luck ( Keep The Children Healthy) and away from T/V and silly P/C games.
