On May 15, the day after Bike to Work Day, Mayor Trish Herrera Spencer met with Copenhagen’s Environmental and Technical Affairs Mayor Morten Kabell to discuss his Danish city’s efforts to create safe roads for all users. The event, organized by Bike Walk Alameda, gave Spencer, city staff and members of the community the opportunity to speak with Kabell about the successes and challenges of creating safer streets for all roadway users. Kabell said that 45 percent of all Copenhageners commute to work or school by bicycle.
