Meet Canada's 'Great Trail'—20,770 Kilometers of Car-Free Trail
Jeremy Hazan reports: "Canada has its very own 'car-free highway' currently being built and so far it’s 20,770 km long!"
Hazan notes that the plans for the "Great Trail" are a lot grander than the big "Bike Autobahn" news out of Germany earlier this year.
Construction on the Trans Canada Trail began in 1992. The Great Trail will complete the project in 2017, "just in time for Canada’s 150th anniversary." Hazan adds: "So far over 87% of the trail is complete, and it already connects most of the major cities in Canada."
There's also an interactive map of the Great Trail—in case you want to access your envy from the comfort of your own, non-20,000-km-long-bike-trail-having home.
