In an effort to provide a bit more incentive to would-be cyclists in the style of “keeping up with the Jensens,” the city of Copenhagen has installed a public bicycle counter on a popular greenway that passes through the City Hall Square. The digital readout displays both the daily and yearly traffic totals, with the numbers being uploaded to the city’s Center for Traffic, helping officials better gauge the need for bike-friendly infrastructure. As thoughtful add-on, the unit includes a free air pump as well. To bring greater attention to the project, the city will be giving away a brand new Biomega bicycle to the 500,000th person to pedal by.
