From our good friends at the Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space blog we find this wonderful video entitled Cycling Friendly Cities funded by the government of the Netherlands. They discuss planning for bicycle infrastructure in Amsterdam and Houton in Netherlands, Copenhagen, Denmark and Bogota, Columbia. The portion showing so many people biking in the snow was especially revealing. I loved the quote from a planner in Bogota: "If you can make a city more bicycle friendly you can make it more human." How cool is that? Click here for the YouTube Link if it doesn't start below.
