Bici por Barcelona: New bicycle lane at Placa Tetuan

I wanted to post about this before, but Bici por Barcelona has a Estrenando del carril bici de Tetuán post up already with nice pictures already:
La plaza Tetuán tiene nuevo carril bici, que permite atravesar la plaza de lado a lado por la Gran Vía de una manera mucho más rápida, sin tener que pasar por dentro de la plaza.

Time for me to check it out too.

The Copenhagenize Index 2013 - Barcelona

The Copenhagenize Index 2013 - Barcelona:
Barcelona fell from a lofty 3rd place in 2011 to #12 this year. A lot of competition entered the Index this time around and Barcelona suffered from it. After a few years of insistent progress, it seems that Barcelona has plateaued. Cities that slow down after having showed us visionary leadership can be frustrating. There are a handful of cities poised for promotion to the premier league of cycling cities and Barcelona is certainly one of them.
