Amsterdam and Copenhagen are competing to be the best cities in the world for bicycles, so it's nice to see this infographic (below) from Icebike.org that shows exactly why cycling is fantastic in Copenhagen.
As you can see, 95% of the population think their city is bike friendly and more than half the population think it's faster to get around by bike than by car.
Quite different from many other cities where people prefer to get around by car...
Everybody seems to be cycling in Copenhagen since there are more bikes than people in the city - and five times as many bikes as there are cars.
In total the Copenhageners bike 1,27 million km every day. And unlike London, they have more than 400 km of bike paths to cycle around on.
