The Radbahn Berlin is a set to re-define Berlin's commuter culture through the design of its first covered bike path. This community-driven proposal imagines transforming the unused space under Berlin's elevated U1 subway line into a bike lane which would stretch six miles. Lined with cafes, food trucks, bike stops and lush greenery, the proposed project could revolutionize travel while setting a new standard for urban environmental consciousness and innovation.

The cycle path would provide a direct connection between three districts and varying neighborhoods. The proposed model would replace Berlin's current bike lane, which is riffled with protruding roots and rubble. The Radbahn Berlin would allow for safe bike travel while limiting vehicle disruption, providing a convenient solution to air-pollution and acting as a "playground for modern mobility, innovation and leisure activities."
