    Just to let you now Malmo’s climate is more similar to Seattle’s rather than Chicago’s. I lived near Malmo as a child and snow is quite rare.

      Yes in the video above, I didn’t see all the bikes set up for shopping like in Holland. First time I went, I was amazed.

      I lived there for 5 months, and was doing my master’s thesis on bicycling and bicycle facilities — know all about it. but NL is a special case. still impressive to see Malmo’s bike friendliness.
