Anyone who is interested in the design OF bikes is probably also interested in design FOR bikes (at least that’s my justification for this post). A couple of weeks ago, Jonathon of Bike Portland fame posted about a 20-minute video called “Copenhagen, City of Cyclists.” In the video, Copenhagen’s director of traffic planning talks about the elements that make the city successful when it comes to bicycle usage. Also, he discusses some of the ideas that the city would like to implement in the future to become an even better place to ride a bike. For anyone remotely interested in cycling issues and urban planning, this video is a must see. You will see why Copenhagen has such an enviable bike culture and maybe you will find a few ideas that you can implement where you live. Download the free video from the City of Copenhagen bike page if you haven’t already watched it.
