The Bicycle Mayor of Copenhagen


The Bicycle Mayor - Klaus Bondam from Colville Andersen on Vimeo.
Here's a quick and dirty film I made featuring Copenhagen's 'Bicycle Mayor', Klaus Bondam. There was a conference in Edinburgh in association with the Dreams on Wheels exhibition and they wanted a greeting from the Mayor in charge of the Bicycle Office in the City of Copenhagen.

Worth mentioning that we have several mayors and one Lord Mayor. Each mayor is in charge of different areas, like Health, Schools, Transport, etc. In other countries they call them councillors or suchlike.

Anyway, here's the man responsible for the http://www.copenhagenize.com/2008/10/surfing-green-wave-in-copenhagen.html, the closing of a main artery - Nørrebrogade - to cars and generally increasing awareness about cycling in Copenhagen.

The bell ringing every few seconds was pretty annoying. Otherwise it was a great video!
