You will see in the pictures I have posted just few of the bicycles parked near the train Central Station. There are far too many of this scene all over Copenhagen where you can see hundreds parked on designated bicycle parking areas. Danes like bikes. It is part of their daily life. The locals use it in going to their neighbors, to the market, to the shopping centre, and it became a means of transportation in going to the office. I like Danes for practicing such a wonderful way of saving gas and for saving money. I like its practicality and the way they behave on the road and on the bike path. In my three days of stay in downtown Copenhagen, I am usually amazed with the bikers who stops at the stop sign, and start moving their bikes like waves on green lights. I particularly admire some attractive bikes on the road and on the parking site all adorned with baskets decorated with flowers & vines and what have you.
Visit Copenhagen and enjoy the bikes. You will be glad you save, you enjoy, and you make the most of your holiday.
It does appear that like so many other northern European cities, cycling is a common means of transport. Probably due to it being the most conveneient way of travel. I am not sure if this has changed in recent years, especially as Copenhagen now has a Metro service.
In the summer the cycle traffic is heavy and I must admit the style if cycle is somewhat old fashioned, not many mountain bikes on the roads here!
From previous experience of cycling abroad we decided against hiring bikes in Copenhagen. If we had wanted to it would have been very simple as the city has a great system whereby anyone can borrow one of the 2,000 city cycles free from one of the 150 specificly marked bike racks around the city centre.
You need to insert a 20 kroner coin initially and you get it back when you return the bike to any of the bike racks.
There are of course other bike hire centres, some offering guided bike tours.
Bicycles are a common way to get around the city and you can either rent one from Osterport Cyckler Oslo Plads www.oesterport-cykler.dk or Kobenhavens Cykler (central station) www.rentabike.dk from DKK75 for a day to DKK340 for a week.
Copenhagen operates a free city bike system during the summer months, the bikes can be recognised by colourful discs in the spokes. A DKK20 deposit is required & on returning the bike to any of the 110 designated racks throughout the city you can get your deposit back. We never saw 2 bikes together so we could not take advantage of this scheme.
Watch for bicycles. No, this picture does not show a one-day-a-year "Ride your bike to work" occasion. This is simply an ordinary regular day in the big city. Copenhagen is a city where bicycling is part of everyday life.
It helps that it's a flat city - and it helps that the city provides plenty of bike racks. I'm still a little amazed though - wouldn't it be hard to find _your_ bike in the middle of such a pile?
The people of Copenhagen and I believe also Denmark as a whole seem to love bikes. You will see them everywhere you go. You can get city bikes all over central copenhagen for 20DKK which is refundable when you return the bike to one of the stands it doesnt even have to be the bike stand that you got the bike from. This is the cheapest and probably at times the quickest way to make your way around Copenhagen and it will help keep you fit.
The easiest and the most adventurous way to 'discover' Copenhagen on your own - use a bike. In some streets you can find red bikes called Copenhagen bikes which you can use just by inserting 20 DKK in the lock. When you return the bike to it's place, you'll get your money back from the lock.
Also you can rent a bike at Copenhagen central Station Track 12.
INCREDIBLE!! Thousands of bicycle everywhere!!
Honestly I have never used it(!),but it seems that they are "public";do you need a bicycle?Take one of them
and go where you want!
Obiouvsly nothing to do with "italian ciclyst lifestyle condition"...in Copenhagen streets are large,there are
cycle tracks everywhere and cars stop themselves when they see you...definitively Scandinavia...
Just the best way to move if you have not the "anxiety"of the tourist who wants to see every meter of the city!
seems to be the bicycle. Especially in warm weather. I've never seen so many bicycles in one place. Amazing! If only we would do the same in the U.S. But we are too dependent on our cars, it's a shame plus not good for the environment either.
