Invented in the 90’s by a commuter who grew tired of showing up to work sweaty and exhausted, the Trampe lift, recently upgraded and reinvented as the CycloCable, has already carried over 200,000 bicyclists up this 150m-long cyclist deterrent. Cyclists who place one foot on the escalator’s angled platform will be pushed uphill at a speed of 5mph.
