Trivial question

Thoughts on bike commuting

Photo galleries

  • Speaking of commuting, Cycle Chic - Copenhagen Girls on Bikes shows that Danish women cycle commute in style:

    It's about bicycle culture in Copenhagen, Denmark. 35% of the population - 550,000 people - ride their bike to work or school each day. Bicycles are such an integral part of our culture and there are many aesthetic aspects on the streets at any given moment.

    Perhaps we can inspire people in other countries to commute by bicycle or lobby for better bike conditions in their cities by providing a portrait of a city that lives and breathes bikes.

    Fair enough, but it also seems a bit pervy on some level…
