Cycle Superhighways in New York, Copenhagen, London


Cyclists are gaining ground in New York City, Copenhagen, and London. The City Fix recently reported that New York City has more than 300 miles of bike lanes throughout all five boroughs, and a bike-sharing service that will have at least 10,000 bikes has started in the city.

London is doing well with its biking routes, adding more than 72 miles of cycling paths to connect the city center and outer boroughs. It also has a fairly large bike-sharing system (or scheme, as they call it) in place.

But the big daddy of all the cycling superhighways is Copenhagen. In April, the city planners opened the first of 26 routes that will connect the suburbs to the city. The additional 186 miles of routes will add to an impressive 217 miles of existing cycle ways. And the icing on the cake: Copenhagen also has a free bike-sharing system.
