The Argentinian capital has since last december a public bike-rent system. Initially, around 100 bikes are available but numbers are supposed to grow up to 500. It’s part of the city’s plan of sustainable mobility. If you have ever sat in a bus in Buenos Aires you will know what it is all about.
Want to know what the most bike-friendly cities are in the world? I do. Virgin Vacations says:
- Amsterdam, Netherlands. 40% of all traffic movements by bicycle
- Portland, USA. A varied bicycle network that connects all parts of the city
- Copenhagen, Denmark. The world’s most successful community bicycle program
- Boulder, USA. public programs that help promote safe biking
Further: Davis (USA), Sandnes (Norway), Trondheim (Norway), San Francisco (USA), Berlin (Germany), Barcelona (Spain), Basel (Switzerland). I really wanted to know how they made that list. I looked into it, they have judged Education, Environment, Evaluation & Planning, Encouragement and Engineering. Short: The five Es.
Did you realize how there are some overlaps with the greenest cities of the world? Do you know any other bike-friendly or unfriendly cities?
