Norway biking

Norway has the world’s first Bicycle Escalator built on a long, uphill road to help tired cyclists (or parents with baby strollers), and encourage cycling in the city.

Invented in the 90’s by a commuter who grew tired of showing up to work sweaty and exhausted, the Trampe lift, recently upgraded and reinvented as the CycloCable, has already carried over 200,000 bicyclists up this 150m-long cyclist deterrent. The curious escalator has become a tourist magnet as well.
