Copenhagen, Denmark city planners make good on ambitions to build an extensive highway exclusively for local bicycle commuting citizens

On July 26, 2012, commuter bike company, Linus Bikes Inc., recently observed Copenhagen, Denmark’s development of an extensive bicycle highway that local Danes could utilize to traverse from the city to the countryside.

According to a news report from The Huffington Post, a network of up to 26 bicycle courses will be added onto the commuter bike highway that initially finished construction in April. The article went on to state that many of the locals of Copenhagen have been enthusiastic about the new bike highways and routes because they provide means for commuters to get across the city and to the countryside in a “going green” way while providing a healthy means of exercise.

This report states that the highway is being constructed primarily as a means baseline travel since a considerable portion of the local Danish residents utilize a commuter bike to get to work. However, a secondary objective of the highway project is to motivate more and more people to ride bikes to get from place to place as an alternative to cars and other means of travel.

This highway should function the way an average highway for cars would. A network of highways exclusively for commuter bicyclists would bypass the danger of having run-ins with automobile drivers. The article goes on to state that regular maintenance would be conducted upon the highway just as they would do so with any highway or road. This project is not just considered a happy-go-lucky bike trail for the Copenhagen government; they are treating this new highway as a legitimate and revolutionary means of commuting for many of its citizens looking to travel in a healthy yet effective way.
