What are they?

According to Lars Gaardhøj at Euractiv:

“This means the bike paths are as straight as possible, making them faster. Normal bike lanes usually meander where there is space available for them, which may prove cumbersome to cyclists. The paths are also broader and during winter, snow will be removed from them, as with regular roads.

“Everyone said there has to be better bike lanes, better lightning next to the bike paths, it has to go fast and the snow must be removed quickly…”

These could change the lives of many suburbanites.
