Copenhagen and radical cycle culture

At Culture|Futures  listening to the architect Jan Gehl talking about how bicycles have humanised Copenhagen, and how crucial they will be to the new urbanism.

Interesting how many hits this YouTube video has been getting in the last few days.

The boggling incredulity with which the video’s American viewers seem to greet the vision of bicyclists (“LOL socialism in action.Europe will soon be going back to the stone age. The sooner, the better”) is a great reminder of a how wide the cultural gulf is, sometimes.
