China's first bike lane in the sky was recently completed in the southeastern city of Xiamen.

The 7.6-kilometer-long lane is also the longest in the world to be built on raised platforms.

It has 11 exits, connecting with six Bus Rapid Transit Stations, three overpasses and four buildings.

The two-way lane is 4.8 meters wide, offering 355 parking lots for shared bikes and 253 lots for private bikes on seven platforms.

It was built under the city's Bus Rapid Transit line, which can keep bikers out of the blazing sun and rain.

1.3-meter tall guardrails and 30,000 lights are also installed along the lane.

Local authorities say the bike lane will be opened to the public in the near future.
