Road Elevator Gives Cyclists A Much-Needed Push [Video]
Bicycle lift gives people even more reason to travel on two wheels.
People who cite steep hills as the reason they don’t cycle to work may be all out of excuses thanks to simple motorized aid called the Trampe CycloCable. It’s an idea that was first invented in the Norwegian city of Trondheim during the 90s, but has only recently been brought back to life.
To use the facility, you just have to stand astride your bicycle, put your left foot on the left pedal, and place your right foot on a steel plate located in the start station at the bottom of the hill. The CycloCable will then push you gently up the hill, building to a comfortable five feet per second.
