高考英语阅读理解06
Considered one of Europe's two "bicycle capitals" along with Amsterdam, Copenhagen(哥本哈根)
counts more bicycles than people and cycling is so popular that its numerous bike paths can become
crowded. Two-wheeler traffic jams are especially regular on the main Noerrebrogade road used by
around 36,000 cyclists a day. "You have to elbow your way in to go forward and some cyclists aren't
always thoughtful," complains 22-year-old university student Lea Bresell.

     The creation of bike highways "comes right on time", says Danish Cyclist Federation Spokesman
Frits Bredal. "Copenhagen's roads are overloaded with people who want to ride their bicycles in all
kinds of weather," he says. "If in the 1960s Danes viewed the car as the symbol of freedom, the bicycles have supposed that role today," Bredal says. "It's a mode of transportation used by all social classes,even politicians ride bikes," he says.
     It is on crowded Noerrebrogade-the busiest bicycle street in Europe, according to the cyclist
association-that city planners have decided to build the first of Copenhagen's environmentally friendly
roads. The jammed bike paths will be widened up to four metres on either side of the road, which itself
will be reserved for bikes only. The idea is to make Noerrebrogade "Europe's great cycling street", says
Andreas Roehl, Copenhagen government's bicycle program manager who is also known as "Mr. Bike".
     But Roehl is not content with making life easier for Copenhagen's inner-city cyclists: He wants to get
suburbanites(郊区居民) out of their cars and onto two wheels as well. His goal is to hike the percentage
of suburban commuters cycling to and from the city from the 37 percent it is today to 50 percent by 2015.

3.    The underline word "mode" in the second paragraph probably means?
A. fashion
