Cyclists’ Favorite Place
The Netherlands is a perfect country for cycling. The country’s newly-built architectural project, The Hovenring, has become one of the cyclists’ favorite place, according to The Huffington Post Canada. Like a flying saucer, the steel bridge hoovers above the Heerbaan/Meerenakkerweg intersection, its impressive pylon marking the entrance way to the cities of Eindhoven and Veldhoven, according to Hovenring Website. The bridge comprises a 70-metre high pylon, 24 steel cables and a circular bridge deck and is made out of circa 1.000 tons of steel. The Hovenring's was nominated recently for a Dutch Design Award.
