Copenhagen: Cycling as the Nose in the Tent

A little bit ago, a reader passed on this link to Streetsblog, about the great cycling environment in Copenhagen.

While this isn’t news, there are a couple of interesting insights.

First, that Copenhagen, unlike Amsterdam, did not have an historic base of cyclists, but turned to cycling as a mode very consciously.

Second, that the emphasis on cycling has had very positive benefits on the entire transportation system (particularly on safety) and the urban environment in general.
