Cycling Versus Chaos......

It already started slowly yesterday: two of the major streets in Copenhagen got parts shut off yesterday for transportation, and suddenly people forgot their traffic manners and the rules throughout the city, and it will only get worse.

In the upcoming week, Copenhagen is hosting the cycling event: UCI Road World Championships, so a large area of the city will actually be closed for traffic bicyclists and pedestrians can enter the area, but heavy restrictions are imposed on cars etc. Will road rage occurs in the areas surrounding the event area?? People living and/or working in Copenhagen will seriously have challenges.

Me, I am a bystander, as I am quite immobile these days, but thanks to technology I am able to do a lot of the usual things from my home... will miss the interaction with friends and colleagues, but this is only temporary.

Traffic manners are usually forgotten
