Do YOU do the wiggle or the Superhighway?

From SF's Wiggle...

to Copenhagen's bike Superhighway (Hi Mads!)

urban bicycle infrastructure comes in all permutations - from the uber-friendly to the non-existent.

Where does your city fit in to the mix? Certainly many cities have a lot to learn about bike infrastructure from bike havens like Copenhagen, and many urbanites worldwide look at SF's little Wiggle and think they've found heaven on earth.

The point of this post is to remind you envision better bikeways. The Wiggle is clearly something to celebrate in SF, but the traffic flow is still confusing to pedestrians, cyclists and drivers alike, and so we have a long way to go. When I watch the animation about Copenhagen's bike superhighway, I'm envious.

Finally, it must be said that I am incredibly indebted to the city and transportation planners, bike advocates and neighborhood associations who are working to build, step-by-step, the utopian bike infrastructure stuff that dreams are made of.
