As the bicycle becomes the preferred form of transport in modern cities, Copenhagen is holding an open design competition for a new bike share system. The city wants the system to be a faithful friend in an hour of need for Copenhageners, and to be an attractive product for the city’s guests.

Copenhagen’s bicycle system is a natural part of city life – citizens rarely give it a second thought. The above video by Mikael Colville-Andersen shows how ingratiated cycling is in the city’s landscape.

For the competition’s assignment and criteria, download the guidelines from the website.

    A similar project (unfortunately, without a design competition) has been launched in Germany on a broad scale: In July, Hamburg has started the StadtRAD (city bike) system, which is literally everywhere (so far 67 rental stations). http://www.stadtradhamburg.de.
    And people adapted to it pretty fast. Nice way to offer intermodal mobility!

What do you think?
