I like the "desire lines" idea, but I wonder how helpful that concept is outside of Copenhagen where, with so much less bicycle infrastructure, our "desires" may be too diffuse to observe.

Desire Lines have existed since human beings started wandering around. So applying them to any situation is not difficult.

There is a project in Rio de Janeiro where mapping desire lines is leading to bicycle infrastructure. An example that it is the most natural way to plan for liveable cities.
