How the Danes do it – admired through American eyes.
Some notes: counters show exciting increases in use, over 50% women, cargo bikes for kids, kids start at 4, dedicated lanes some with curbs, drivers are tames, kids learn to bike in school, safety in numbers, biking is part of life, infrastructure like ramps and parking is easy to use, signals are timed for bikes – not cars!, cheaper, easier and safer mode of transportation.
New York is a battle ground, a war between car and bike, compared to this.
