Life Is a (Bicycle) Highway
The city of Copenhagen has finally launched the first section of the long-awaited "Bicycle Superhighway" that will stretch about 300 kilometers, according to the Danish bike blog Copenhagenize, which writes of the years of planning that went into the project: "I shudder at the thought of how many meetings were required and how many litres of crappy, municipal coffee were consumed."
The blog adds, "This area of Greater Copenhagen is a product of the late 60s and early 70s. Back then planning for bicycles was integrated into the design of the areas. As a result, cycle tracks avoid main streets and there are many overpasses over the cycle infrastructure for cars, allowing safe routes to everywhere in the area."
