In many places, just getting a bike lane put in can be an uphill challenge. So a solar-powered illuminated bike lane seems virtually impossible.
However according to Tree Hugger that’s just what you’ll find in Nuenen, in the Netherlands. They’ve put in a short stretch of path (inspired by Van Gogh’s painting Starry Night) that is solar powered.
The path is embedded with twinkling mosaic chips coated with a special paint, it then absorbs light rays in the daytime in order to glow blue-green at night.
