SkyCycle

I know all about Sky Rides, and the various local spin offs, which are aimed at encouraging cyclists of every age and ability. But SkyCycle is news to me. SkyCycle is a proposal by Exterior Architecture to expand cycling in London by sending cyclists skywards along the side of raised railway tracks in a network that hooks up mainline stations in London. I like heights and undoubtedly the views would be spectacular. However, will shifting cyclists out of the way of motorised traffic make London a healthier or happier place? I think reducing segregation between cars, cyclists and pedestrians with shared space might be more civilised.
