Visit from Copenhagen

Mark Thyrring contacted us through Twitter because he was excited about the Bike Index Kickstarter and was visiting Chicago.

He's a photographer and videographer from Copenhagen (which he will tell you is bike heaven). He liked the Bike Index so much that he contacted the police and a few shops in Copenhagen to try to get them to integrate the Index there!

So we loaned him a bike to ride around and see Chicago for the week that he was here. He tried (and enjoyed) Chicago style pizza and said our bike infrastructure was great, particularly the protected lanes on Milwaukee which he said reminded him of Copenhagen.

He also enjoyed biking on the Lake Shore path and around Millenium park and made this video about his visit.

Thanks Mark, we'll see you when we visit Copenhagen!
