Wow, I was gonna try and suggest Chicago, but damn, Copenhagen has any US city beat, hands down. No contest at all, there.

Is Copenhagen all as flat as it looks on the video? What happens in the suburbs? Do cyclists have to pass a proficiency test before being allowed on streets?
It all looks good (tho perhaps a little boring!)

1) Copenhagen is very flat which is a huge advantage for Bicycles.
2) There are connecting bikeways to the suburbs.
3) I am not aware of any proficency tests.

Milton Keynes, England is my former home. It has an enviable cycle path system almost entirely separated from the road system (considerately shared with pedestrians) - but there's one major problem: this investment is economically and culturally vetoed - EVERYBODY drives cars there. I cycled there last week and managed to spot two cyclists on the network. What a crying shame! Viva Copenhagen and most Netherlands cities. They have it really good there. Nice film, it made me happy.

I'm afraid the problem with Copenhagen is, if ever went there, I'd never want to come back!
