Copenhagenize Your City

I find a sight like this somehow pleasing to the eye. In city councils around the world they speak of "Copenhagenizing" their cities by building better infrastructure for bikes, including the all-important bike lanes.

Just read something interesting. How many kilometres do the citizens of various country ride on average each year?

Denmark: 958 km
