Now This Is Bicycle Friendly

I came across this short video at the site of Virgin Vacation's 11 most bike friendly cities (click here). It is a video of the world's only bicycle lift (elevator) located in Trondheim, Norway. It is ingenious, and probably one of the most bicycle friendly inventions I've seen yet. Make sure you pause it towards the end of the clip so you can read the side of the lift's machinery (it's in English). I'd like to visit this city for the sole purpose of using this lift...what a way to commute.

I appreciate the bicycle friendly attitude that is behind this idea, but the luddite in me wants to ask, "Couldn't one just get off of the bike and walk it up the hill just as fast?" No electricity required. No maintenance, no waiting.
