Day 5: Exploring Copenhagen on a bike

There is a reason why making a city more bike-friendly is called to Copenhagenize it. Copenhagen is the cyclist capital of the world. On this tour, you will gain insights into the Copenhagen bike culture, while experiencing it. During the tour we will pass by many of excellent examples of how Copenhagen has accommodated to its many cyclists: Bryggebroen – a bike and walk only bridge that has created a much-needed shortcut between two Copenhagen neighbourhoods. Dronning Louises Bro – the busiest bike path in the world. The first part of the Super Cycling Highway. We will ride slowly and make plenty of stops where the guides will provide insight into the history of the development of biking in Copenhagen.
