Copenhagen – The city of cycling

Ah, Copenhagen. Whenever one is looking for some information about cycling, two cities are usually featured: Amsterdam in the Netherlands, and the capital of Denmark, Copenhagen. 38 percent of the city’s population commutes with their bike daily, and I bumped to this awesome video from the 2010 Velo-city happening by film maker Clarence Eckerson, Jr. who made a short documentary about Copenhagen and its bikes through the eyes of a North American.
Although things in Finland are pretty okay in regards of cyclists and their safety, it’s nothing like they have in Copenhagen. I sure wish it would. See the video from below.

About Comingthru

Coming Thru (or Coming Through - as that URL was taken) is a daily updated bike magazine - a collection of writings and links that relate to biking in its every form. The idea started from when Maarten met Markus decided to finally start collecting the things we like about bikes and talk about our everyday adventures in dodging moving objects at high speeds.The site is run by a collage of cyclists, most notably by Canadian Johanna MacDonald, Belgian Maarten Patteeuw and Finnish Markus Sandelin.

It all started in the spring of 2010, after a record breaking snowy winter when Markus bought a house 25 kilometers from the office and decided to handle the commuting with a bicycle. It turned out the bike wasn’t up to standards for that kind of stress and the first weeks were more tragicomic than glorious. Thus the idea began to brew to actually document this journey.
