Copenhagen Chic

According to the Population Reference Bureau "The world has experienced unprecedented urban growth in recent decades. In 2008, for the first time, the world's population was evenly split between urban and rural areas. There were more than 400 cities over 1 million and 19 over 10 million. More developed nations were about 74 percent urban, while 44 percent of residents of less developed countries lived in urban areas. However, urbanization is occurring rapidly in many less developed countries. It is expected that 70 percent of the world population will be urban by 2050, and that most urban growth will occur in less developed countries."
Interesting trend isn't it? Does this mean that more of us will choose the bike to get around than the car? I sure hope so. Even better, if we can adopt habits like our much cooler friends in Copenhagen or Barcelona where the bike a vacuum. Check this mini doc out from Mikael Andersen, founder of the sexy blog Copenhagen Chic. You might not like all his ideals, but he's definitely got some solid thoughts. Enjoy.
