"Two-wheel takeover: bikes outnumber cars for the first time in Copenhagen

Denmark’s capital has reached a milestone in its journey to become a cycling city – there are now more bikes than cars on the streets. Can other cities follow?"
This is an interesting article. Too bad I forgot how to embed for LJ. I'm on the site right now, it's a legit news site and no threats detected.


" The changes in their lifestyles, socio-political empowerment, and the local economy are manifold. Nanda Sunar, a Dalit woman, recounted the self-confidence and social prestige that comes with being able to ride a bicycle. “Coming from a poor Dalit family, I could not even think of owning a bicycle,” she said. “Being able to ride gives me immense confidence.” "

"Floating bus stops are bumped-out bulbs which have a bike lane running behind the bus stop amenities. This simple configuration allows transit vehicles to stay in their own lane without jumping in front of cyclists, and gives cyclists added protection from vehicular traffic at the bus stop.

I want to let you all know that this community has always been a community for discussion about any "bikes", even things like kick-board "scooters" (skateboards with handlebars) and including motorcycles.

There is a pretty incendiary video making the rounds on the internet, recording interactions between an SUV driver and a group of motor bikers.

I just want to say that if you choose to discuss this video here in the community, please try to keep things courteous.

A lot of people have been saying things like "the driver should have run more of them over", and so on, and if that happens here, just let me know so I can ban that person from the community forever.

"Also, you claim that it is environmentally friendly to ride a bike. But if I am not mistaken, a cyclists has an increased heart rate and respiration. That means that the act of riding a bike results in greater emissions of carbon dioxide from the rider. Since CO2 is deemed to be a greenhouse gas and a pollutant, bicyclists are actually polluting when they ride.

I know, you own a car and drive so are paying gas tax — but not while you are riding your bike. When you are driving your car and generating gas tax you are also driving on the roads so are only really paying for the roads when driving — not while biking."
