Basically, the same principle used on skiing areas; well, I'm thinking of the old days, when you got hold of a continuously circulating rope.

If they put two of these side by side with about a half a foot to a foot between, then the bicyclist can rest a foot on both sides of their bicycle. Also, other pedestrians sould use it as a lift as well, for going up those steep hills.

I think that is a good comparison.

What makes this style particularily good for bicyclists is that it allows thems to keep both hands on their handle bars while being lifted to the top of the hill.

I can't believe how much of this I just wasn't aware of. Thank you for bringing more information to this topic for me. I'm truly grateful and really impressed.
