    Velo City

    "Architect Chris Hardwicke envisions a day when you will walk out your door, jump on your bicycle and commute to work at 40 kilometres an hour through dedicated tunnels suspended above city streets."

    I am frustrated w/ slow pages, I'll check back later.

    I like the idea of an enclosed tunnel for winters, no need even for the powered air movement.

    It'd be great if those things connected to train/metro/bus stations, and major public areas. I'm sure that would get a lot more winter cyclists out there.
