Neat little piece on trying to emulate features of Copenhagen’s urban landscape:

Step out onto any major thoroughfare, and you’ll see Danes of every stripe cruising by: businessmen decked out in suits, mothers carting their adorable Scandinavian children, older folks, kids — everyone bikes in Copenhagen. No wonder cities as far away as Portland are looking to its example to increase bike ridership.

And you cannot claim they have milder winters – snow removal is still a major problem … but they do a thorough job clearing bike lanes first, rather than last.
