When I say “rush hour” you think thousands of cars bumper-to-bumper honking at each other right? Well rush hour looks a little different in Copenhagen. Around 8 a.m. everyday, half a million people jump on their bikes and head into the city’s center. The video below is a typical intersection on a typical weekday. For every car, there are dozens of bikes.
What’s particularly cool about it though is that Copenhagen doesn’t have a so-called “spandex-clad” bike culture”- just people riding because it’s the quickest, most effective method of transportation.
