The Copenhagenize Index Still Needs You!

Wow! A huge thank you to the 156 people in 67 cities all over the globe who are now registered to help us with the 2012 Copenhagenize Index of Bicycle Friendly Cities! To those 156 people: Please stay tuned for next steps.

For everyone else: a plea. We really, really want to include some major global cities like Mumbai, La Paz, Shanghai, Istanbul, Rome, St. Petersburg, Seoul, and Bangkok. Do you know someone in these cities? Even if they haven't hopped on a bike in years, maybe they'd like to help out. Who knows what it could lead to! Hopefully not a massive bike modal share increase. God no!

Here are the cities we still need help with the Index. For some of them we have one or two recruits. Please check the list and forward this post to anyone you know in these cities. Ideally, we require three people in each city.

Hi! Sorry to bother you, but I'd like to ask why York, UK is not included? What requirements a city needs to meet to be included? By the way, many thanks for your work! Cheers!
PS: I corrected the last comment.

Where is Strasbourg, France ? It has more cyclist than all the french cities you mention...

Robin said...

I'll fill it in for Cambridge, UK. We have 52% of people who cycle at least once a week here in little Cambridge... We are the cycling capital of the English speaking world, but not in your survey :-(

Happy to help for Rome, Italy.
Been living here 18 years, and it certainly wouldn't rate highly in terms of being bicycle friendly.
