When it comes to the area of Copenhagen, Denmark, commuting is done primarily through biking. Along with being a great form of exercise, it’s also economical in comparison to traveling via car, bus, or train. Keeping this idea in mind, Copenhagen has gone so long without any true paths for cyclists to take and it’s great to know that city bikes will now have their own spots, not unlike cars on a freeway. This will be done through the creation of roads called ’superhighways.’
The idea of city bikes being used for commuting isn’t a new one. After all, if you were to go into any city, you’d more than likely come across at least a couple of bikers traverse busy roads and intersections amongst minivans and trucks. A bike-specialized company like Linus would be more than happy to support the idea of ’superhighways,’ though. The first of these in a proposed series of 26 has been finalized in April, so Danes are eagerly anticipating the others being constructed.
Cyclists can put ’superhighways’ to use in the same kind of way cars would make use out of busy freeways. These roads are almost mandatory for people who ride city bikes on a constant basis, especially when you think about the hazardous environments these people must put up with. Obstructions along the lines of low-quality pavement work and hazardous gaps in the ground could only be disastrous. It’s just a comfort to know that these ’superhighways’ will render such problems almost worthless.
It’s easy to see just why biking from place to place could make a cyclist feel better about themselves. Whether during a morning or afternoon, it’s easy to see that cycling is a terrific form of exercise and once that feeling of the burn is met, you’re aware that no gym could possibly ever give you the same sensation. It’s a comfort to know that ’superhighways’ will continue to give that to people, without any of the danger that comes with sharing roads with automobiles. The standard amount of exercise coupled with a high level of safety is one reason why these roads will be very popular with Danes.
Biking will probably become far simpler for people now that these ’superhighways’ are being made. Those who travel via bicycle will, without question, notice just how attractive the prospect is and maybe even more cyclists will arise as a result. I’m sure that people would bike around a lot more, however the fear of being caught in the roads with automobiles impedes such an aspect from coming to life. We can only hope that this, along with eco-friendly results, will be brought to life.
