Elevated bike paths were first seen earlier this century, but I came up with the idea independantly. Basically it is a bike path that is elevated one or more stories above street level like a freeway for bikes. The bike path might be used by electric bikes as well as walking traffic. The path would provide a safe was for non-automobile traffic to traverse Los Angeles. The paths would be enclosed for safety. They would follow above the sidewalk area in places and in other places move to the center of the street. The elevated bike paths would also ad a futuristic and hopeful artistic element to a city that is known for it's dislike of change.
