Copenhagen and Lund - two cities in Scandinavia where bicycles dominate
Here are two videos from Streetfilms and the BBC which shows two cities in Scandinavia where bicycles dominate. You have probably already heard about Copenhagen and the city's great reputation as a bicycle city. But you might not have heard about Lund, a Swedish town where around 60% of the population use bicycles and public transportation.
The second video, from Streetfilms, shows Copenhagen "through North American eyes":
And while I am at it I might as well share some of my own favourite cycling blogs.
The first one out is Carbuster's editorial blog where they discuss all topics related to the "carfree movement". If you are interested in transportation issues I can highly recommend you to start subscribing to both the blog feed and the actual Carbuster magazine.
The Guardian has a good biking blog where they post about â€œall things cycling - in the UK and around the worldâ€.
Crap Cycling & Walking in Waltham Forest is a good cycling blog. Just beware, you can get really depressed from reading their posts. Another similar blog is Bristol Traffic. If you are even more interested in biking topics in and around London you should also check out Real Cycling.
If fashion is your thing you might want to check out Cycle Chic from Copenhagen.
Do you know about other great cities where bicycles has a dominated role in the traffic? Do you know about any other interesting cycling blogs? If yes please share them with the rest of us in the comment section below. Thanks!
