Elle Reagan's curator insight, May 26, 2015 9:38 PM

I thought this article was good as it gave information on how the world as we know it is growing and cities are popping up everywhere. Developing countries are seeing a large increase in growth and with that comes the growth of cities. With this, more megacities will be born and hopefully the quality of life increases with life in cities.

Cycling Culture in Copenhagen

Cycling Culture in Copenhagen | RRHS AP Human Geography | Scoop.it
More than a third of Copenhageners bike to school or work, but it hasn't always been that way -- and city officials say that's not nearly enough.

Biking here was stress-free — quite a contrast to my route to work in Seattle, which one international bike expert recently called “death-defying.”

Seth Dixon's curator insight, August 21, 2013 11:34 AM

Forms of transportation are typically seen in terms of technological developments, but the cultural institutions can either support or hinder the diffusion.  In Copenhagen, bikes are as common as vacuum cleaners because of a cultural movement supported by political initiatives to incentivize cycling and promote sustainable transit and active lifestyles.  Read the first part of this series where an American tourist is pleasantly baffled by European cycling culture. 

Adilson Camacho's curator insight, September 1, 2013 5:44 PM

Very good! 

Sarah Ziolkowski's curator insight, January 1, 2014 6:25 PM

This article applies to the  concepts of culture unit, specifically the diffusion section. It talks about Copenhagen's new cycling culture emerging after the government's efforts to neutralize CO2. 36% of the city's population bikes to work or school, a number they'd like to increase. However, they are still well ahead of The United State's highest percent in Portland, Oregon of 6%. Copenhagen's action could be a model for your community to change to biking.
