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).
    And people adapted to it pretty fast. Nice way to offer intermodal mobility!

What do you think?
