Travel & Leisure magazine had a segment in their November issue that covered Copenhagen’s cycling culture, where more than a third of the population commutes by bicycle.

With a system of free rentals and wide bike lanes, it’s built to encourage bikes as a “normal” transportation option.

Their online feature interviews 10 people about why they ride, what to see when you’re there and what they love about their country, and includes pics (like the one at right by C.Kerber) of the various bikes and people.

Fortunately for us stateside folks, NYC’s DOT has tapped Danish cycling architect Jan Gehl to help develop their 1,800 mile master plan.

Great article – Ann Arbor Mi has a wee little bit of bike culture compared to Copenhagen. We are trying. On a scale of 1 to 100, Ann Arbor is a 10 Copenhagen is a 99. Check out the density of the buildings in the back ground. Makes it work for biking. Also, lots of comments in the interviews about not being able to park. Cars have been squeezed out!

How does a city like Ann Arbor get from a 10 to say, a 50?
