Copenhagen Superhighway Opened… for Bikes (+ Cool Bicycling Video)
Copenhagen is well known for being one of the most bicycle-friendly cities in the world, perhaps the most bike-friendly city. Adding to its bike awesomeness, it opened a bicycle superhighway network this month. Originally, 13 routes were planned, but now that is up to 26. In total that will come to 300 km (186.4 miles) superhighway bike routes.
Some of the routes will simply be upgrades to existing bike paths, and others will be completely new. The first route is the 17.5-km Albertslund Route, running through Copenhagen, Frederiksberg, Albertslund and Rødovre.
For more details on some of the routes, including some info and a bunch of pictures from a ride along the first one, check out Copenhagenize’s post on that.
