For Copenhageners, cycling is as natural as brushing their teeth. Very few Copenhageners regard themselves as ”cyclists.” Most see themselves merely as citizens who transport themselves from A to B, using the fastest and most flexible mode of transport, which the bicycle just happens to be in most cases.
Copenhagen illustrates that cycling can become a modern metropolis’ preferred mode of transport. This has been achieved, not least, because the bicycle – whether it is used for commuting, going to the beach or the bakery, or for bringing the kids to kindergarten – is a key component for urban planning in Copenhagen.
Get a first-hand experience with Copenhagen bicycling culture in June 2010. Copenhagen will be the host city of Velo-city Global 2010, a conference that focuses on the potential and challenges of bicycling, and which is expected to attract participants from all over the world.
