The buzz from Copenhagen is all about its new 'superhighway' for bikes. The real secret to its pioneering urban design, though, is that it puts people first on all its streets.

This is tremendous as its the first European city to give bicycles their own space;unlike NYC where a bicycle rider takes their life in their hands.
Amsterdam and Venice of course are car free, but this is the first for a major European city - very impressive.

Excellent. Thanks for posting this.

A special mention for Munich, too. Cyclists have long been given proper treatment there.
