There is a bicycle elevator in Madison, WI that moves one up and down from trail on the shore of the lake to the city center level.

It seems there was some interest in reconstructing the former Penn Incline (around 17th Street in the Strip) a few years ago. Certainly a costly undertaking, but would be awesome to see these awesome pieces of infrastructure begin to reconnect parts of the city again! Source.

(For those who are curious about the many passenger inclines of Pittsburgh’s past, I studied the inclines for a thesis project at CMU last year. Report here.)

How about a big apple to park your bike in?

Seems this would work well around here, particularly in areas on a slope, where it may be helpful to have entrances on more than one level.

The bottom half of one car of every Belgian inter city train is reserved for cyclists. Unfortunately they’re usually full of unpleasant meaty obstacles

Oops. The photo didn’t look that bad on my phone. It’s a copper plated 1975 Schwinn Paramount with period NR group. Sorry the tires don’t match; it turns out international touring on vintage tubulars is troublesome. The bike kinda doesn’t match the 100 pound three-speed step-through tanks most folk ride over here. I’ve had a few multilingual homeless guys remark that they believe it to be an exceptional bicycle.

Saw this today and thought of this thread. Whether you want to be jealous of Europe (in this case Berlin) or convince yourself that it’s not all it’s chalked up to be, there is certainly something for you in this photo album: http://www.tagesspiegel.de/mediacenter/fotostrecken/berlin/galerie-mit-leserbildern-abgefahren-ihre-unbeliebtesten-radstrecken/4031388.html?p4031388=2#image

Truth is there’s a lot that could be improved upon, but I still laugh every time someone goes off about how horrible and unsafe Berlin is for cyclists. They have no idea!

An actual photo of the “Cykelslangen” (cycle-snake) bridge in Copenhagen (from a retweet by Vannevar). http://www.theguardian.com/cities/2014/jul/14/bike-lanes-bridge-copenhagen-new-cycle-snake-cykelslangen
