For bike commuters, Copenhagen is still the city to wish you lived in. A new ranking of over 100 global cities puts the famously bike-friendly Danish capital at the top of the 2015 Copenhagenize Index.
The index measures 13 different criteria for each city, from infrastructure like bike lanes, racks, or bike share programs, to the political and cultural climate for cyclists and the percentage of commuters using bikes instead of cars.
Investment in bicycle infrastructure is a modern and intelligent move. Plenty of research shows the social, economic, environmental, and health benefits of urban cycling. Studies from Denmark tell us that for every kilometer cycled, society enjoys a net profit of 23 cents, whereas for every kilometer driven by car we suffer a net loss of 16 cents.
