It's a slow news day, local biking-wise. Here's some news from abroad.
It is on crowded Noerrebrogade -- the busiest bicycle street in Europe, according to the cyclist association -- that city planners have decided to build the first of Copenhagen's environmentally friendly boulevards.
The jammed bike paths will be widened up to four metres (yards) on either side of the road, which will itself will be reserved for buses only.
Copenhagen's bike highways of tomorrow will be dotted with pit stops where it will be possible to pump up tyres, fix a chain and have a drink of water, Roehl says.
And synchronised traffic lights prioritising bicycles over cars will bring riders from the suburbs into Copenhagen "quickly and safely," he says.
Lon Anderson would absolutely lose it if this happened here.
The first two city-to-suburb bicycle highways are due to open at the end of 2011 and reach a distance of 15 kilometres from central Copenhagen, while a third, going as far as 20 kilometres from the capital's centre, will be put into service in 2012.
If we were building two bicycle highways into DC, I might go with Piney Branch/13th and Mass Avenue. Third, Wilson Blvd with improve TR Bridge crossings.
