Copenhagen and much of what I saw while in Denmark was bike friendly with dedicated lanes for cyclists. It was really refreshing to see so many people riding from the littlest tike's, a father with his children to elderly. Chicago may have a bike lane but there is always some car parked illegally in the bike lane. It's to bad our city planners did not take cycling into account. To add cyclist dedicated lanes would be nearly impossible now.
These two photos on represent a small fraction of bikes in and around the city center train station. Maybe I should move to Copenhagen and open up a repair shop.
