I’ve been blogless for a while but that’s just because I’ve had the pleasure of being out on a lecture tour where I, as ‘Denmark’s leading bicycle ambassador’ [or so they call me] and CEO of Copenhagenize Consulting get invited to lecture about Copenhagen’s bicycle culture and the all important Marketing Bicycle Culture.
It’s brilliant to meet so many people passionate about reestablishing the bicycle as a feasible, acceptable and respected transport form and about Copenhagenizing their cities.
I blog about the journey’s on Copenhagenize.com but apart from Japan and Moscow in the spring, I’ve been lecturing in La Rochelle, France, Pardubice and Prague in the Czech Republic and in Budapest. I got to ride with 20,000 other cyclists in the Hungarian capital. A real festival atmosphere:
Then there was New York City, Baltimore and Washington, DC and next week it’s the West Coast with Seattle, Portland and San Francisco.
It’s amazing to meet so many people that would love to emulate Copenhagen’s experience and talk to them about urban planning, bicycle culture and how to make it happen in their cities.
