Every time a politician or road hog in a car complains that North American cities weren't built for bikes and can't accommodate bike infrastructure and are not like Amsterdam or Copenhagen, I am going to send them this wonderful tweet from the cycling professor at the Urban Cycling Institute. It demonstrates that it's not about geography or urban design; it's about making a conscious decision, a tough choice that streets are for people and not just for cars.
