Cycling Friendly Cities

This video, Cycling Friendly, showcases cities Copenhagen (Denmark), Amsterdam and Houten (Netherlands), and Bogotá (Colombia) and how they have promoted the use of bicycling over cars for transportation in urban areas. My dream would be for Los Angeles and other American cities to head in that direction.

According to this source, the scenario for Cycling Friendly Cities came from Enrique Peñalosa, former mayor of Bogotá, who used the Dutch and Danish policies for urban transport planning as a model to create a social model for his city.
