IDEA MILL: FOOT REST FOR BIKES



Copenhagenize - All of sudden this little bicycle-friendly detail showed up on the urban landscape in Copenhagen one day. . . I'm talking about the railings that the man is holding onto and resting his foot on. It's located on a little traffic island on which cyclists who are heading straight on wait. The City of Copenhagen has implemented this double railing simply as a convenience for the cyclists who stop here. A high railing to grasp with your hand and a foot railing for putting your foot up, if that's what you fancy doing. Either way you can also use the railing to push off when the light changes. The foot rest reads: "Hi, cyclist! Rest your foot here... and thank you for cycling in the city."
