Most Americans would consider San Francisco a bicycle-friendly city. A respectable one in every 25 trips in the city happens on a bike, putting it near the top for cities in the U.S. But none of those cities comes close to Copenhagen, Denmark, where cycling accounts for almost one in every three trips.

To understand the battles that shape the city's transporation infrastructure, Professor of Geography & Environment Jason Henderson spent three summers and a semester in Copenhagen, interviewing city planners, transportation advocates, politicians and more.
