Challenging cyclists to create "an attractive and modern bike share system," Copenhagen pushes their standing as a forward-thinking, eco-friendly city with a competition open to designers around the globe.

Updating their 1995 bike sharing system (the first of its kind), the major goal is to create a transportation system effective in increasing the percentage of cyclists around Copenhagen while decreasing the number of injuries—geared toward commuters, tourists and city residents alike.
