Copenhagen Bicycling Infrastructure Video…. Ideas for Milwaukee.
The video below, by UWM graduate student Joe Peterangelo, features many of these components. Some of the components shown are designed to make riding more enjoyable and safe. These include, curb separated bike lanes (cycletracks), bicycle traffic lights, and a simple device which allows bicyclists the ability to climb a staircase with their bikes. It also shows a few examples of bridges designed with both pedestrians and bicyclists in mind. Further, the video includes shots of two large bike storage facilities which certainly make securing a bicycle more accessible to riders, and facilitates far more people than a similarly sized automobile parking garage. All of these improvements didn’t occur overnight and, each individually aren’t what make Copenhagen one of the world’s best city for bicyclists, but each add to making the city more bikeable and livable. Take a look.
