It will connect the Huilongguan community in northern Changping District, known for its affordable housing, with the Shangdi area of northwestern Haidian District, where many large technology companies are located. The lane crosses expressways via overpasses and tunnels. /VCG Photo

The 6.5-kilometer-long lane has barriers to prevent vehicles from entering, as well as sections running over and under major highways to help ensure the free flow of cyclists. /VCG Photo

"The cycling lane saves commuting costs and encourages young people working in the IT industry to travel in a greener way," said Wang Qiang, deputy director of the city's development and reform commission. /VCG Photo
