Haha.
Wow, that is lazy.
Track standing, leaning against a truck, or putting a foot down are more honorable options. :)

Instead of using money on new cycling lanes or maintainance on the existing they blow money on useless crap like this.They renamed some of the existing lanes as "Super" bikelanes when in fact nothing was changed or renewed...It´s all hot air in the attempt to brand Copenhagen as some sort of bike Capital of the globe.Sure the city is bike friendly but as the number of cyclists have remained the same within the last 20 years or so the number of motorvehicles have exploded.

Amsterdam is the bike city capital, not copenhagen. And then, any dutch city has better cycling infrastructure than amsterdam so... Sorry for copenhagen and danish.

Helmet should be voluntary, not mandatory. I have the right to kill myself if I want. I have no right to drive drunk though, as i have no right to kill others. Civil paternalism should stop.

No offence taken.
I think it's stupid. If people don't like putting their food down they should learn to trackstand. It's not that hard to learn.
One of the good things they came up with, was the WC in 2011. And then again. If the worlds was held in Vejle (A smaller danish city in jutland), it would have been much more exciting to follow. short steep climbs, narrow roads and a much more entertaining race. But maybe the city is too small (100008 ppl in and around the city.)

People should not learn to trackstand! Are you crazy? People should jump og theyre bike when they are waiting for red.
I bike Copenhagen every day, and it really is a greate city to bike in, but of course it could be better.

Not true, according to my knowledge.

Disagree. If you want to kill yourself that is fine. The issue I have is when you don't kill yourself and you are laying in a hospital being a vegetable using my tax dollars to keep you alive because you were too stupid to wear a helmet.

Not true that is not true, according to everyone knowledge. You don't become bike city capital in 3 years. And anyways, both have boring grey weather, no matter how many bikes they have. Also netherlands is *f##k* flat. Shame for sport cyclists!!!

Barcelona is about a few thousand times better for cycling or living than amsterdam or copenhagen. Also, mediterranean people are not so square minded as these north european. Or Girona. No one in Girona would move to Amsterdam or Copenhagen with all that shit weather and shit food. No cycling weather; no cycling capital in the end.

Whoa easy...I was´nt claiming Copenhagen IS the bike capital....I just pointed out that some "Branding experts" and a handful of clowns at cityhall WANT it to be.It´s a load of bs really.Anyway far more people used bikes in this city when my grandparents were young.I just hate that focus on portraying Copenhagen as some sort of "Green/sustainable-bikefriendly-high-quality-of-life" metropole...BS i say.It is a lie.In fact i can´t stand this shithole anymore so we will move to the country in a couple of months:-)
