Copenhagen is virtually synonymous with "Best City for Cyclists" and keeps ahead of the pack by constantly innovating. According to its tourism website, every day "36 percent of all Copenhageners [cycle] to work, school and university." Other cities would rest on their laurels, but Copenhagen wants to bring that number to 40 percent by 2012 and 50 percent by 2015. There's just one word for that: Awesome.
