The Hovenring : Worlds First Suspended Bicycle Roundabout


The Hovenring, as its known, means ‘Ring of the Hovens.’ It’s just an ode to the surrounding towns, Eindhoven, Veldhoven, and Meerhoven. Ipy Delft designed this architectural milestone which features a 230-foot tall central pylon, 1,000-ton steel circular bridge deck, and 24 steel cables. Aluminum lamellas, translucent sheeting, tube lighting, and LEDs light up the Hovenring at night.
