Good stuff!!! Would be nice to see anything 1/2 that good ever happen en masse here in the United States.

^^It did look a bit crowded to me, like it would be hard to go your own pace, or are there other issues like where the paths go/don't go, or ????
It's pretty half baked really.
Intersections with limited overview, poor maintenance, too narrow for the traffic load, and so on.
We have loads of bike paths here in Denmark, but often they are in a poor condition.
To tell you the truth, I would guess that most Danes would have been happier if the money had been spent on upkeep of the existing bike paths.
Seen from the politicians point of view, that unfortunately does not create a lot of PR to do, but inventing another project that is going to lack maintenance does.......go figure.
Ah, the universal truth...
