Poland’s Glowing Blue Bike Path is Designed to Delight and Amaze

It will come as no surprise to anyone who has ever visited Amsterdam, where there are more bicycles than people, that it was a Dutchman who first came up with the idea for a glow-in-the-dark bike path. In the Netherlands, though, the path was lit with LED lights. This new path, unveiled recently in Lidzbark Warmiński, Poland, is dependent entirely on solar power.


The blue-lit path, imagined and invented by TPA Instytut Badań Technicznych Sp. z o.o, can remain lit for around 10 hours once charged all day by the sun. It’s still in the testing phase, but considering that cycling is one of the most popular sports and pastimes in the world, I can’t imagine it won’t spread around the world in the blink of an eye!


And these images are more than a little stunning, which doesn’t ever hurt. Anything.
