A funny, snarky, and engaging guide to getting a better biking city.

Urban designer Mikael Colville-Andersen draws from his experience working for dozens of cities around the world on bicycle planning, strategy, infrastructure design, and communication. In Copenhagenize he shows cities how to effectively and profitably re-establish the bicycle as a respected, accepted, and feasible form of transportation.

Building on his popular blog of the same name, Copenhagenize offers entertaining stories, vivid project descriptions, and best practices, alongside beautiful and informative visuals to show how to make the bicycle an easy, preferred part of everyday urban life.

Review quote

"Mikael is the world's most convincing bicycle advocate because he is not really an advocate at all but an extraordinary spellbinder who happens to love bicycling. I see many thoughtful people becoming enchanted by this book and then bicycling forth to build their own human-scale streets as 'monuments to human ingenuity.'"--Paul Steely White, Executive Director, Transportation Alternatives
