Cycling Rantzausgade

Click on the link for a video of a retail street in the Nørrebro area in western Copenhagen. About one block behind is a chokepoint (as it crosses a greenway) which doesn’t allow cars or motorcycles past — only buses and cyclists can go through — but the shops still do fine with just local traffic circulation. The video stops at the intersection with Aboulevard, the main artery into Copenhagen from the west: it’s not a freeway, it has separated bike lanes, and during my quick observation about 25% of the vehicles even there were bikes.

This is what I mean by cycling there being an "effortless revelation."
