Estonian architecture studio Salto has designed a 170ft. (51m) trampoline road called Fast Track. The idea here is that you bounce to your destination. According to Salto, its intent is to give the user a different experience of moving and perceiving the environment.
The trampoline road is made of black rubber and runs through the Nikola-Lenivets forest in South-West Russia (I’m packing my bags right now). Personally I think it’s a great idea, here’s why: • An alternative mode of transportation. • Better for the environment. • Exercise. • Ohmygoddness FUN!
Another form of exercise transportation or exertrans (I totally made that word up) in the works is a swimming lane along the Regent’s canal in London. Here’s my issue with this… Say you are going on a date; you have to get there an hour early, find the nearest restroom to dry off, change, style your hair, apply your make-up, tote around your bag of wet clothes. See where I’m going with this? I guess it would be closed in the winter? All sort of sanitary issues come to mind (think about that for a minute). At least with the bouncy road you could make that a fun date activity.
