Bricks and bikes

I took this photo during the podium discussion we organised at the Kesselhaus.  The main topic of the discussion is what Hamburg is doing to mitigate climate change.  This photo probably is one of its manifestations.  While most bike lanes are part of the road, Hamburg’s comprehensive bike lane is integrated within the sidewalks.  In February this year, the city was awarded as the European Green Capital for 2011 by the EU Commission.
