Copenhagen Bike Parade-2010


StreetFilms always has really informative and cool videos, and this one is no exception.

Last week, Copenhagen was the host for the Velo-City Global 2010 conference featuring over 1,000 attendees, advocates, and bike enthusiasts from all over the world. 

On the third night of the conference, Copenhagen did something it doesn't do often: holding a bike parade! This critical mass-style celebration featured the young and old on all sorts of bikes, and filled the streets with entertainment and music. Of course in Copenhagen, every day is a massive critical mass of cyclists (38% of all trips are bike) then what is the need for ever needing to declare your right to the road?

The optimistic mood of the conference and the gaining momentum for bicycling facilities worldwide was as inspiring as the people of this great, livable city.  The next one is March 2011 in  Sevilla, Spain which is seeing skyrocketing numbers taking to the velocipede!
