Traffic Calming with Bicycle Parking

Traffic Calming with Bike Parking
The City put in a traffic calming measure on this street next to Saint Hans Square in the Nørrebro neighbourhood.

It was a perfect opportunity to plant some bike racks on the raised curb sections. This area is a hotbed of bars, cafés and restaurants so both the narrowed street and the bike racks are fantastic details.

I also enjoy the symbolism of a car being forced to slow down and navigate past long rows of bicycles. It's like a sandwich.
