Copenhagen Rush Hour


Bicycle rush hour on Torvegade in Copenhagen. A YouTube classic which I revisited recently and figured I would repost here.

I Love to see people chatting in a (wide) bike lane

Too late! a few days ago I made a dvd of cycling clips, I'm showing it in class today as part of a discussion lesson on bicycling for transport. Wish I'd included that clip, it's perfect but there's no time to burn a new dvd - I'll get it for next time. thanks for reposting!

I was wondering how bus stops work with this type of lane setup. Do the bicyclist stop when a bus is letting off passengers? Or is there an island (for lack of a better term) for bus stops so the bike lane is between the bus stop and sidewalk?

Cyclists are required to stop to let passengers get off the bus. This happens quite often, but less polite people keep cycling their way through. So, if you are a bus passenger, always look right before getting off the bus.
