Cool! I haven't been to Kunming in 7 years, I guess I wouldn't recognise the city anymore. Sounds like a great way to see the lake.

The toll gates are very interesting, how much do you have to pay to get in? Do you pay with a public transport card or some special card? First time I see a toll road for bikes, very original :)

Shenzhen plans bicycle-only roads
Jan 15, 2020
Shenzhen Daily Excerpt

IN a move to build a bicycle-friendly city, the city is trying to create a 393-km bicycle commuting network backboned by six bicycle express roads and 12 bicycle trunk roads in the coming years.

According to the latest plan on bicycle transport development released Monday by the Shenzhen transport bureau on its official website, http://jtys.sz.gov.cn, seeking public suggestions, the city will start planning cross-region bicycle roads that link Kuichong and Dapeng, Shekou and Liuxiandong, Futian and Luohu districts, in addition to cross-district roads between Longhua and Futian, and Longhua and Nanshan.

Additionally, the city will build bicycle lanes along the coast, and around Longhua greenway, Guangming greenway and the water bodies and mountains in Bao’an District.

Through traffic improvement and the construction of facilities linking Metro stations, the city will build at least 300 km of bicycle lanes. The bicycle lanes will cover 70 percent of the city’s roads by 2025 and share 10 percent of public transport ridership.

The move aims to satisfy the needs of residents for short commutes, leisure and sports, and attract short-trip car drivers to turn to bicycles.
