Citizens who use bikes

April 27, 2012

Copenhagen’s Andreas Rohl, speaking to Canada’s National Post:

“I like to say we have no cyclists in Copenhagen,” Mr. Rohl, manager of the City of Copenhagen’s bicycle program, told about 200 people at the Ontario Bike Summit at the Hyatt Regency on King Street West on Tuesday. “We have citizens who use bikes to get from A to B.”

Such non-confrontational lexicon could help lower the temperature of road battles in Toronto, he suggested, where “cyclists” often duke it out with “motorists.”
