Copenhagenize Goes To Malmö

Swedishness
Bike path by the sea, with the famous Turning Torso building in the background.

Malmö is Sweden's third-largest city and one with a bike culture to be proud of.
Malmö Bike Culture
Brand spanking new bike traffic lights in the former docklands area, now a posh residential area and seaside retreat for the citygoers. Nothing quite as lovely as a new traffic light for bikes to accompany a sophisticated system of segregated bike lanes.
Bike Intersection
Cyclists waiting on their segregated bike lane for the bike traffic lights to change to green.
Family
Universal sight in Europe and Japan.
Malmö Central Station
Bike parking outside the Central Station. Another universal sight in Northern Europe, from Stockholm to Berne, Berlin to Amsterdam.
Crescent
Beautiful chain guard.
Copenhagenizing Malmo
Classic bike racks embracing a tree.

Traffic lights for bike lanes. Would love to see that here in Melbourne. Unfortunately we do everything on the cheap down here...
