Bikeable Cities--the view from a Copenhagen cycle track.

Bikeable City

The third in a series of videos I produced for the Knight Foundation featuring Gil Penalosa of 8-80 Cities.

BIKEABILITY means designing cities to attract more bikes and fewer cars. There are many reasons to do it, including fighting gridlock and obesity. But many cities are going about it the wrong way, according to Penalosa, by “investing in the 2 percent who already bike, not the 98 percent who don’t.”

    What a great series. Perfect for sharing on social media to spread awareness around these topics. Hint, hint.
