Cycling is a way of life in Denmark. Danish people love to cycle. Cycling is an important means of transportation in Denmark and you can't look in any direction in the city without seeing a bicycle because 90% of the Copenhageners own a bike. Furthermore, Denmark is actually one of the greenest cities in all of Europe as well. We all know biking and environmentalism go hand-in-hand. In fact, I think only the Netherlands can beat Denmark when it comes to cycling.
Throughout my trip in Denmark, I have taken pictures of idle bikes that I found interesting. It’s not uncommon to see bikes left in the most random of places. If you were to visit Denmark, you would surely run into many of these.
Any visitor to Denmark would surely be surprised at the prevalence of bicycles throughout the city. The roads are designed to accommodate cyclists, in that they generally have their own lane at a safe distance from the cars, making cycling a much more comfortable option. Thus Copenhagen is a city that invites you to cycle. It is simply their way of life, and if you want to experience it the local way, you have to jump in the saddle.
Happy cycling, everyone!
