Visual intrusion is one of the big objections to a monorail. This shows how minimal a cycle based system could be. Again a real system would be flat have some 'pod' to improve aerodynamics & cover and pedals naturally.
OK I'm not actually suggesting your have such a 'ride' as part of your journey to work ( but I think someone is ) . This does show
- The visual impact of a cycle mono-rail would be minimal ( see how far the cable goes with out towers.
- The inherent cost is low ( look at the size of the twin cables - ok they are sized for one person )
- People are good with heights( if it's safe enough )
