A cycle highway is a roadway dedicated to bicycles and other compatible forms of human powered vehicle. They are physically separated from roadways for cars. As the name suggests, a cycle highway is designed for uninterrupted travel. This may be accomplished with infrastructure such as lanes, bridges, underpasses, on-ramps and off-ramps. They are typically constructed to connect cities, provide quick transport through a downtown core or link neighborhoods to public transport such as light rail stations.
