  • The World's Best Behaved Cyclists are in Copenhagen

    16 Apr 2014 | 4:25 am
    As I highlight in this TED x Zurich talk of mine about Bicycle Culture by Design, Copenhagen has the world's best behaved cyclists. Bar none. I've cycled in close to 100 cities around the world and I've never seen anything that comes close.Citizens in any city do not - contrary to popular perception - wander around all day looking for laws to break.Wherever you happen to be reading this from, you're probably aware of the general perception of "those damned cyclists". Even here in Copenhagen, the perception persists, not least from the Copenhagen Police and their one-man wrecking…
  • Copenhagen - Is Cycling Up or Down or What?

    5 Apr 2014 | 2:50 am
    It's all so confusing. Numbers indicating rise and falls in cycling levels. Although perhaps not as much as we think. Firstly, back in 2009 I made a bet with anyone who would take it. Cycling levels in Copenhagen had been stagnant for many years. In 2008, a whole new kind of stupid showed up in Denmark. The Danish Road Safety Council (Rådet for Sikker Trafik - or Rodet for Sikker Panik if you like) decided to expand their ideological campaigns by promoting bicycle helmets. They convinced the Danish Cyclists Federation (DCF) to join the parade. To this day, the DCF remain one of the few…
  • Bikes Beat Metro in Copenhagen

    4 Apr 2014 | 2:24 am
    Like anyone interested in city life, we at Copenhagenize Design Co. like to keep our eyes on the street life of our city. Currently however, the City of Copenhagen is planning to take some away from the street, by forcing  people underground, with the 'Cityringen' expansion of the Metro. Instead of investing in the reestablishment of our tram network - so rudely removed by the ironically-named mayor Urban Hansen in the 1970s - like cities all over Europe, Copenhagen seems keen to get people off the street.This doesn’t come cheap: 3 billion Euros gets you an additional 17 stations added…
  • Copenhagen Free Bike Rental

    21 Mar 2014 | 10:00 pm
    I'm Kieran, one of the 4 co-founders of Copenhagen Free Bike Rental. I've also been interning here at Copenhagenize Design Company for the past few months. At Copenhagen Free Bike Rental, our goal is to ‘salvage abandoned and broken bicycles and offer them to visitors so they can explore Copenhagen the way it should be done: on two wheels’.It is partly an attempt to fill the gap left by the closure of the Copenhagen City Bike system, and its unsatisfactory 'GoBike' replacement and partly a response to the fact that in Copenhagen there are more bikes than people – and thus many unused…
  • Bicycle Design Archeology - Top Ten Details We Want Back

    21 Mar 2014 | 10:29 am
    Copenhagenize's Top Ten Bicycle Design Details That We Want BackThere is an ocean of fantastic and practical design details from over a century of mainstream bicycle culture. However, many things that used to be completely normal and often standard on bicycles have disappeared off the radar. The reason for it is well-known. As the bicycle as transport was gradually and effectively pushed out of cities as planners continued to make space for cars, the people left riding bicycles were focused on sport and recreation. The "weight wienies" discarded frivilous details faster than a rapidly…

But I do want to give a moment to spotlight these books, since I did read them in full and they do count in my 100 book challenge.

  • The Diva brightens a gustly sunday in a hole

    Denmark is windy… that’s a fact. So running, biking – everything keeps on all year as usual – allmost. BUT! When the program states a run for 25 kilometers, and the wind is aprox 15 m/s and the gusts around 25 m/s, it becomes a serious issue – some creative thinking is required – and not to forget or underestimate: SUPPORT. Everyone knows, there is many excuses not to exercise, not to go out that door – in the end, we most likely regtret that we didn’t go out. And that’s where the Diva is a gem; Any goal is possible – with a Diva at…
