Copenhagenizing the World

4 Oct

All around the world we’re in a race against time to get people onto bicycles. For the public health, for the common good, for rebuilding liveable cities.
Each and every day roughly 500,000 citizens choose the bicycle in Greater Copenhagen. This blog highlights who they are, why they do and how it was made possible.

Forty yars ago Copenhagen was jus as car-clogged as anywhere else but now 37% of commuters crossing the city boundary ride bicycles each day. That number rises to 55% in the city proper. Copenhagenizing is possible anywhere.” ~

    I dream of Copenhagenizing cities in the US. Even making cities more accessible to bikes. It’s a dream I hope to see come to fruition before I die. It would make me oh so happy! I like the blog- thanks for sharing!

    Thanks for your comment. We do have a long way to go, and for the most part we aren’t even in the planning stage, much less the doing stage. I hope it does happen, other than high oil prices, I’m not sure what will motivate people and thus government to make it happen. I love the website too, I just found it. There’s quite a bit on it I want to read.
