I’m thinking of doing my own version of this nifty little video to show people locally. I’m glad to see that Freiburg im Breisgau got a mention. This is not so far away from us in the south of the Black Forest, and is known as a very bike-friendly city. They were making bike facilities in the 50’s and 60’s when everyone else (like Stuttgart) was building bigger roads, which is yet another example of how cities tend to go in vastly different directions with transport policy in Germany. It also shows that narrow streets and old towns needn’t be a problem when making bike facilities- you just have move motor vehicles out of the way.
