History of Danish cycling to be on display

The storied tradition of Denmark’s bicycling history will be on display at City Hall starting tomorrow.

“Dreams on Wheels,” an interactive art exhibit showcasing the Danes’ unique commitment to two-wheel transportation will make a four-week stay at City Hall, following recent stops in Portland, Oregon and London.

The exhibit, the collective brainchild of curator Thomas Ermacora and Danish urban designer Jan Gehl, merges “urban cycling culture, design intelligence and environmental consciousness,” according to a release from the San Francisco Municipal Transportation Agency, which worked with the Danes to bring the exhibit to The City.

“The SFMTA is proud to share this exciting exhibit on bicycling with San Francisco and the Bay Area,” said executive director Nat Ford.

The exhibit will be on display until Dec. 15 at City Hall’s South Light Court on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. (except for Nov. 26 and 27).
