Biking Copenhagen :: Travel Like a Local

There is no better way to “get” a city than to experience it like a local because they usually knows where the best places to shop, eat, and live are, so why not travel within a city like a local as well?  We think there is nothing quite so wonderful as biking Copenhagen, whether you live in the city or are only visiting for a short stay.  There is something so sweet about hearing the sounds of the city by bike, sensing the vibe of the people, and being a part of a bigger movement.  There is something pretty special about feeling the wind in your hair and smelling flowers on the way to your destination!

Come rain or shine, snow or hail, you will find Danes on their bikes.  It’s just the way they roll (pun painfully intended…)

Here are a few of our favorite shots of locals biking Copenhagen lately…

If you are visiting Copenhagen and are interested in renting a bike, we recommend checking out Velorbis for the ultimate in luxurious bike travel and for a budget friendly option with built in GPS you can test out the newer city bikes offered through Bycyklen.

That’s one thing I miss so much about my years living in the Netherlands – biking everywhere. I loved going to the market on Friday, filling my basket with flowers and fruit and vegetables, and cycling home. Going out for the evening, dressed up and wearing heels, and hoping on the bike into town. Cycling with the kiddos on the front, back or both ends! And when they got older, a whole family bike ride around town. Portland OR is a good biking city, but not on the scale I’m used too (and of course the bonus about the Netherlands was that it is soooo flat!).

It’s definitely something we would miss if we moved as well. It’s a pretty special thing! (And totally agree about it being flat. Atlanta is all hills and I would die trying to get out of the neighborhood there! LOL!)
