First bike bridge of the world in Copenhagen

velobrücke

It’s a big day in Copenhagen, with the opening of “Cykelslangen” the missing link connecting the harbour bridge and the evil highway by Fisketorvet. For years cyclists have struggled with their bikes up and down steep stairs, or taken ridiculous detours to get to the bike-bridge, but finally it is here. The smooth, curvy, orange ride in the sky, named after the inner tubing in our wheel. Slange is the same word we use for snake, so my best guess is that foreigners will refer to it as the Bikesnake (or maybe the Snakebridge?). It looks like one too, wriggling its way through glass and steel, liberating us from all the obstacles underneath. Quelle: classiccopenhagen.blogspot.dk
