Copenhagenizing Washington D.C.

If you're in the American capital today, Andreas Rohl, head of the City of Copenhagen's Bicycle Office will be speaking at 18:30 at the Amphitheatre in the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center.

"Rohl will describe how Copenhagen has become a world class city for cyclists, one in which 36% of trips are made by bicycle. Mapes will explore the growth of the bicycling movement as a political and cultural force, especially at the local level."

He'll be showing a rough cut of my film about Copenhagen's bicycle culture. A little pre-pre-premiere, as it were.

Niels Tørsløv, the Traffic Director of Copenhagen, also stopped by Vancouver and presented to us on February 25. He also gave us an exclusive peek at what seems to be that rough cut of the film you speak of!

I saw him in Seattle. It was a great presentation. I should have asked him if he considers the new rapid transit lines as a threat to the bicycle mode split.

It should be televised nationally as every DOT has much to learn.
