I am very impressed by the bicycle infrastructure in Copenhagen.
Some highlights of the video below:
- Many bike lanes are double laned
- Special blinking lights on the road so turning traffic know that bikes are coming
- Traffic lights that are synced for vehicles travelling at 20kph
For me, the big takeaway from this is that if you make biking a respected and serious part of your city’s urban planning, people will use it, in droves. Even in very cold countries!
