This is a vision I have for fast and safe long distance commuting for bicycles using enclosed tunnels that provide a back draft for smooth cruising. The elevated tunnels also act as a solar panel array during peak daylight hours protecting riders from the heat by darkening and producing electric and solar heated water to power up environmental controls at each hub.
I absolutely love this idea. This would allow for riders to commute year round more easily.
My wife has asthma and she is unable to ride her bike if it is below 60 degrees. If this idea was in play she could ride all year. I also would not have to rebuild a rusty salty bike after every winter.
Hopefully more people would be inspired to ride period.
