Painted lanes and those "share the road" arrows are nice, but when it comes to being truly bike friendly, they just don't cut it. Copenhagenize Flow is a set of snap-together tiles that create an instant structural bike lane that allow cities to test out a better infrastructure for cyclists. Made from recycled wood and plastic, the tiles cost one tenth of a permanent structure, and after its test drive on one street, can be reused elsewhere.
