What the U.S. Should Do With Bicycles

Nice video of how bicycles are worked into city transportation in Copenhagen, Denmark. I used to bicycle to work all the time in the spring though autumn in Rochester, MN when I used to live there. Here in the Springfield, MO area...you really are completely unsafe if you travel on a bicycle with automobiles as there are almost zero bike-lanes and motorists have no respect for cyclists. There are no connecting bike trails here either...so to even get to a bike trail...you have to put your bike in a vehicle and drive to a trail. :-( It would be great to have what Copenhagen has in American cities.
