Poland Unveils Glow-In-The-Dark Bicycle Path That Is Charged By The Sun

Riding a bicycle is one of the most eco-friendly means of travel and it offers amazing benefits for your body, mental health, and the environment!

According to the Better Health Channel:

"Regular physical activity can help protect you from serious diseases such as obesity, heart disease, cancer, mental illness, diabetes, and arthritis.

Riding your bicycle regularly is one of the best ways to reduce your risk of health problems associated with a sedentary lifestyle.

Cycling is a healthy, low-impact exercise that can be enjoyed by people of all ages, from young children to older adults. It is also fun, cheap and good for the environment.

Riding to work or the shops is one of the most time-efficient ways to combine regular exercise with your everyday routine. An estimated one billion people ride bicycles every day – for transport, recreation, and sport."

This solar-powered bike lane glows in the dark, and is completely self-sustaining, as it's charged by the sun. It is illuminated by phosphor, a synthetic material which lights up after it's been charged by the sun.

Located near Lidzbark Warminski, it was inspired by Studio Roosegaarde and created by TPA Instytut Badań Technicznych Sp. z o.o.

According to Igor Ruttmar, president of TPA Sp. z o.o.

"The material we used for the track gives light for over ten hours. That means the road can radiate throughout the whole night and reaccumulate light the following day."

The main goal of this path is to ensure the safety of bikers at night. Yet, it is also cost-effective, sustainable, and highly attractive, and its designers blue material of the lane to best fit in with the surrounding landscape.

This amazing bike lane is still being tested, so we cannot be sure of its duration, but it is definitely a reason to visit Poland and enjoy its beauty!

People Pleaser

You want to make everyone happy. You go above and beyond to make everyone around you happier and to make your friends and family proud of you. However, no matter how many accomplishments you have, you can never truly please yourself.

No Mistakes

You're are extremely hard on yourself, harden than most people. You destroy yourself of the smallest mistake. You don't know how to comfort yourself or accept a minor defeat.

Instead, your brain reminds you on a daily and consistent basis.

Perfectionist

You constantly aim for success and demand perfection from yourself.

Again, this comes from your desire to please those around you. It becomes a vicious cycle when you strive for perfection and don't let yourself accept accomplishments.

Bad Habits

Little Things Become Challenging

You're probably prone to procrastinating because even the smallest tasks can feel like a monumental challenge. This is especially true for social interactions.

Sending emails, making phone calls, responding to text messages, running simple errands and other engagements all create intense anxiety.

Isolation

Due to your fears and anxiety, you feel isolated and alone. Your friends don't understand why normal things are hard for you or why you need to leave early.

Because of this inner isolation, you keep your feelings inside and let them fester.

Your Own Worst Critic

You are your own worst critic. You give yourself the hardest critiques, even when you deserve praise. You are constantly unhappy with yourself: your choices, your work, and your overall direction in life.

Constant Negative Thoughts

You're mind is filled with thoughts of self-inadequacy and stress at all times. On the outside, to a perfect stranger, your colleagues, and maybe even your friends and family, your life may seem together.

However, no matter how great your life looks to others, you are constantly afraid of what you could lose, and you are never able to truly enjoy what you have.
