With more bike paths than any other Swedish city, Malmö caters to two-wheeled locomotion. To cut down on preventable road accidents, 28 of the city's intersections feature a sensor system that alerts drivers when cyclists are approaching – something New Yorkers would likely kill (or be killed) for. And if locals get a flat tire in Malmö, they can use any of the air pumps and bike tools publicly available along popular cycling routes.
