    Of the approximately 40 national legislatures I've had the opportunity to visit, few have been as open to the public, as easy to walk into off the street and observe up close, as Ottawa's. Many have started out that way - but it is hard to find a country whose national seat of government has not been threatened with, or actually experienced, the sort of violence that Ottawa did on Wednesday.

    BRADENTON, Fla., Dec. 7. 2009 - Support for an accord on climate change in Copenhagen has come from a surprising place: Germany's mammoth re-insurer, Munich Re, which says huge losses due to climate change demand that "fundamental framework conditions should be established" iat the Copenhagen Climate Change Summit, whicxh opened today. "We cannot afford a delay at the expense of future generations," the company said in an official statement.

    This just in... hot off the presses. As always, Copenhagenize has its finger on the pulse of breaking news.A roving New York reporter covers cycling in Scandinavia."If for nothing else the bicycle is blessed in Scandinavia because it saves time.""No other country has done more for the pleasure and comfort of its wheelmen than Denmark...""The construction of pavements takes in consideration what best can serve the interests of cyclists, and cycle paths are provided near all cities, in some instances leading miles away from town into the country.""...ride to market on their bicycles with…
  • Anniversary of the Modern Copenhagen Cycle Track

    22 Oct 2014 | 11:15 am
    I made the above graphic back in 2008 to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the return of Copenhagen's separated cycle tracks.Now it's 31 years on, but the anniversary is timeless.It was in June 1983 that the Copenhagen cycle track returned to Copenhagen. Meaning cycle tracks separated from cars on one side and pedestrians on the other by curbs.For the record, there were cycle tracks prior to this. Historically, separated cycle tracks criss-crossed Copenhagen but many were removed during the brain fart that was the 50s and 60s where planners decided the car was a good horse to back.Here are…
  • Nantes: A City Getting it Right

    14 Oct 2014 | 1:58 am
    A French translation of this article follows the English text.The city of Nantes in France will host the global bicycle conference Velo-City in June 2015. Before showing up, Copenhagenize Design Company decided to do a scouting tour.Nantes and its 600,000 inhabitants - including the immediate suburbs - is one of the French cities that decided to implement an ambitious cycling policy. They dared to innovate and to make strong political decisions. We find that inspiring.To begin with, watch the Velo-City 2015 promotional clip. In this video, Nantes demonstrates that they understand…
  • Swiss Family Cargo Bike

    13 Oct 2014 | 12:47 pm
    No big bicycle urbanist article this time. Just a simple tale of what happens when you loan out your cargo bike. During the summer, a Swiss family from Lausanne checked into my Airbnb room. I have had only wonderful experiences with being an Airbnb host. Half of my guests know my work through the company or through this blog or had the link sent by someone who does, so I get to meet many likeminded people. The other half just like the look of the place so I get to meet fascinating strangers and welcome them into our home.The Swiss family were cool. They kind of just rocked into Copenhagen…
  • Car Industry Strikes Back - Smart Hates Peds

    22 Sep 2014 | 11:57 am
    Here is (yet) another piece to fit nicely in our ongoing Car Industry Strikes Back series.Yep. All this growing momemtum for liveable cities, civilised streets after almost a century of destructive, car-centric traffic engineering is really starting to irritate Big Auto. Smart is no exception. In an almost laughable direct extention of the automobile industry's invention of the concept of jaywalking (as highlighted in this TED talk), Smart decided to use "fun" and "gameification" in order to keep the sheep that are pedestrians down. Under the thumb. Under control. In the name, of course, of…

  • R.I.P. Bed Bugs

    21 Oct 2014 | 2:12 am
    Bed Bugs has just announced that they’re disbanding. Bed Bugs was a trio out of Aarhus, one of many interesting post-punk bands to pop up in the wake of Iceage. With a raw sound driven by frantic power-chord strumming, melodic basslines, monotonous, deadpan yelling and powerfully simple drum-pounding, they managed to carve a path of their own despite their short existence. They will be missed! In the band’s short life span, they managed to produce an excellent split-tape with Perennial Flax (Jeppe Grønbæk Andersen) on Vulgar Deformity and an even better 7″ inch on…

  • Next Stop - Copenhagen!

    The last and final leg of my Europe trip was Copenhagen, Denmark. I really liked Copenhagen. The people there are so friendly, and the metro makes it really easy to get around. The food in the city is also amazing. We went to lots of places, and it was a really great couple of days in this city. We obviously visited the Little Mermaid, which is a statue based on the famous Little Mermaid story, written by Hans Christian Anderson, who lived in Denmark. Funnily enough, the story ends with the Little Mermaid dying and never getting her prince. I wonder why they didn’t show that in the…

    Rating: 4.15 Back to Denmark now for what will be my nineteenth beer from the country and my first from the Stronzo Brewing Company based in Gørløse, around forty kilometres north of Copenhagen. This was one of several beers from the brewery that the Brewdog online shop started to offer earlier this year and also happens to be the only one of theirs that I opted to grab a bottle of. The beer came highly recommended (from Brewdog anyway) and was featured in their pick of guest beers back in March so I’m hoping it lives up to the hype. The word ‘Stronzo’ is Italian and…
