I know how to move a element along a path but how to add another element at 50% of this path (and do the same loop).
1/ create another path with a split point in svg software ?
2/ make a array manipulation on bezier variable ?
3/ deal with timeline ?

4/ or there is another option ?

Those are excellent suggestions from @Sahil


If you want full control over the timing and ease of playing through a segment of a path animation you can put your animations in a TimlineMax and use tweenFromTo() like: 


var black = new TimelineMax()
black.to("#black", 5, {
  bezier: { values: bezier, type: "cubic" },
  ease: "linear"

var red = new TimelineMax()
red.to("#red", 5, {
  bezier: { values: bezier, type: "cubic" },
  ease: "linear"

//tweenFromTo(startTimeOrLabel, endTimeOrLabel, {vars})
red.tweenFromTo(red.duration() * 0.5, 0, {repeat:-1, yoyo:true, repeatDelay:0.2, ease:Power2.easeInOut});

black.tweenFromTo(black.duration() * 0.5, black.duration(), {repeat:-1, yoyo:true, repeatDelay:0.2, ease:Power2.easeInOut});
