A bike path opened for a trial run recently in China which has been described as the country’s “first bicycle path in the air”.

The path in Xiamen in the eastern Fujian Province, is 7.6-kilometres long and according to Xiamen City Public Bicycle Management, the company that operates the path, it was designed to accommodate up to 2,023 bicycles per hour, with a maximum speed of 25 kilometres per hour.

The company also said that the path is open to all kinds of bikes, including public and private bikes, from 06:30 to 22:30 during the month-long trial, in a bid to promote green transport.

The path will link the city’s five major residential and three business centres and there will be eleven entry points onto the path.
