Ah, the power of suggestion.  Copenhagen, Denmark is going to great lengths to promote the postitive eco effects of bicycling, so much so that they’ve installed a bicyclist counter with air pump in front of city hall.  A tiny fault line detects when a biker passes by and the dual LED read outs display total number of bikers for the year and by day.  The count is then transmitted courtesy of a mobile phone to City of Copenhagen’s Center for Traffic.   Apparently, the 500,000th biker will receive a free Biomega bike.
