Sounds nasty. The same sort of thing happens in Oslo. The bike infrastructure can only be used after evaluating the circumstances.

Oh here's another lovely bit: in Norway, a biker on a crosswalk...

Well Danes don't follow the rules too closely either. My own policy is to only run reds at small empty intersections. Got a ticket for that once, plain clothes bike cops in Copenhagen!

Munkedamsveien by Sjøgata, right near at the Oslo-center end of the big "tour de finance" coastal commute route.

I'm fascinated and annoyed by the inability of Norwegian bikers to: (1) bike according to rules (2) wear or ride anything practical.

The guy who founded and owns the company seems to have a vision of what he wants, and he sticks to it. For example, that "dog" model is just a regular model with a door in front. One would think it...

I've got two Niholas, which are tadpole cargo trikes with ackerman steering (i.e. the "box" is welded into the rest of the frame). Pretty...
