In Rain or Sleet or Even Snow

Screen grabbed from Jan Gehl's presentation here:

Don't feel sorry for these people.  Nor snicker.  Copenhagen is a very wealthy, very highly educated city.  You can be certain they had plenty of choice of how to get to their destination and made the conscious decision to ride their bike.  It's amazing what people in cold weather cities will put up with.  Special attention to the stroller.  You can't throw a rock in CPH without hitting a stroller (though I don't recommend nor endorse such activity), one of the best indicators of livable places.
