It's hard for anyone in a U.S. city to imagine a local government that would spend money to plow bike paths. But in Copenhagen it makes good sense: this path sees 10,000 bicycles a day. That makes it a public transportation system like any other, one that keeps 10,000 people a day off the city buses, trains, and roads.
It's a great thing to see. Especially when you realize that they've kept the path as clean as the street running next to it.
