High-speed cars and people riding bicycles isn’t usually the best pairing in the world, however this South Korean highway has managed to create an innovative highway bike lane that allows cyclists to ride relatively safely in between oncoming and passing traffic, and has given the lane an eco-friendly boost by sheltering it with solar panels.

According to AutoBlog,

… the path travels between the cities of Daejeon and Sejong in a region about 100 miles south of Seoul, right down what was the center median of a six-lane highway.

The solar panels over the lane help protect cyclists from the sun, as well as generating energy.
