Sky-Cycle-Ways, Elevated bike lanes

This is the outline for a proposal for a new kind of elevated cycle way. The sky cycle way is an elevated cycle network which reduces commute time for travel for cyclists. This network turns any city into a flat Amsterdam or Cambridge. We believe this is the lowest cost for installation for any personal rapid transit system. By expanding on the understanding of the planning,design and construction of monorails and other elevated transportation methods to a network of elevated cycle lanes would produce benefits for both individual riders and the larger urban community.
