Copenhagen is planting another 20 of these handrail-footrests at intersections in the city.

The foot rests are cheerfully marked with a thank you for cycling in the city! Holy hell, why can’t we have forward looking urban planners like that?

For no reason other than spoiling our cyclists and to thank them for cycling in the city. The footrests all feature the “Hej Cyklist” campaign that Copenhagenize Consulting developed for the Bicycle Office. Simple, friendly and encouraging texts like “Hi, cyclist! Rest your foot here and thanks for cycling in the city”.
