With More People Taking To The Roads On Bicycles,

safety is of a concern, particularly in low light conditions,

 so urban planners in Lidzbark Warminski, Poland, have unveiled a new idea for riding bicycles at dusk, night and dawn,

 the path is made from small crystal-like particles of phosphor called ‘luminophores’ that charge during sunlight hours and can glow for up to 10 hours,

 the glow-in-the-dark bike lane, was built by TPA Instytut Badań Technicznych Sp. z o.o,

this new path in Poland, and this is the great bit of news, requires no external power source, the design is currently being tested to see how it withstands regular wear and tear, for more about the project have a look at Inhabitat, what a neat and safety conscious idea.
