If you want to learn and see more of Copenhagen, than you could do during the walking tour or taking a city bus tour, then a cycling tour is ideal for you! The bicycle is the most popular means of transport in Copenhagen. There are about 650 000 bicycles in the city, which is 5 times more than the number of cars on the city streets. Exorbitantly expensive parking space in the city centre and expensive public transport — all this is designed to make the person start bicycling. Nearly all the city citizens use bicycles, even those who have 2 cars, even ministers, being a role model for the public.
Therefore, traffic jams are a rare case, and the air is pure even in the city centre. It is the paradise for cyclists: convenient bicycle paths, special traffic lights, parking lots near every house, underground station or a store. A cyclist feels confident and safe in Denmark. Would you like to become a resident of Copenhagen for a day? Then off we go — by bike!
