Biking is one of the most common way of getting from A to B here in Copenhagen. We love to bike and the municipality do a lot to support good, efficient and safe bike lanes. 55 % of the Copenhageners bike to/from work and education – and 33% of these bike more than 4 kilometres (May 2009).

One of the initiatives that makes it even more attractive to bike are the greenways. 22 new greenways with a total length of 110 kilometres has been planned hereby are the first 40 kilometres already realised. Find maps and more information here (Danish only).

Here are images from our trip today:

The city park at Nørrebro, Copenhagen.

Here the greenway signposting.

The new biking bridge (crossing Ågade, by the architects Dissing+Weitling and landscape architect Schönherr A/S, opened 2008)

Open green area near by Bispebjers station.

If you are interested in reeding about greenways in New York I can recommend the Bachelor project by Marie Damsgaaard, the Faculty of Life Sciences (LIFE) at the University of Copenhagen. Download it here.
