- n. A road or space for the passage of wheeled vehicles.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
I can only imagine how much higher up I could lock my bike outside the patisserie with that wheelway.
If my ankle wasn’t swollen I’d be out there now, ricocheting off oblivious tourists on the wheelway.
And I’m always threatening grievious bodily harm to people who wear jumpsuits and shout “Where’s the disco”, particularly when they park their Escalades in the wheelway lanes.
