Lego-Like Bike Lanes That Snap Into Place Could Create Instant Biking Cities

Agus Echague

Yeah, I'm on a roll with the whole biking thing, but this is SOOOO COOL!!!!
Ask any biking advocate what it takes to get a new bike lane in place, and you’ll hear stories about painful bureaucracy and skeptical neighbours. But what if a city could try out a pop-up lane that snaps together like a set of Lego--without any permanent commitment?
The Copenhagenize Flow is just a a set of plastic and wood tiles designed to let a city easily and cheaply create separated bike lanes.

    Love this idea! It could be a cool tool to allow towns and cities to experiment with bikes lanes before putting them in permanently.

    Amazing. So when would they disassemble them? Would they only be used for biking events? Would love to know how I could buy a whole bunch and put them in every yucky non walkable/bikeable area of my city. Seems like this is a great urban design solution. I wonder if they've had any hiccups with usage.
