Crazy: The bike escalator in Norway

Pretty crazy, these Norwegian people. Simply build themselves a bike escalator, because a hill is to steep and they don’t want to have to pedal up it. All you have to do, is place your foot on the angled platform and you get “pushed” up the hill, kind of like with a ski lift. Invented in the 1990s and updated just recently, the bike escalator has carried more than 200.000 cyclists up the hill in the Norwegian town of Trondheim. Up to five cyclists can use it at the same time.

As already said: Crazy people, these Norwegians. But have a look for yourself.
