Pedaling is what they do well in this city. People are so accustomed, they prefer to go to their jobs on bicycles, rather than on cars. If you are a cycling enthusiast and you thought cycling around town was a bad idea, Copenhage will make you travel and change your mind.
If you decide to go, try not to be impressed when you see people in suits and heels pedaling. It is the most normal thing in that city. 35% of the population does it. Without a doubt you will enjoy the tour, since you can ride around the whole city by bike. Besides, it does not have slopes, the city is flat, like the whole country.
No, it is not insecure. Copenhage has about 350km of bicycle lanes that are totally safe. They are even separated from the normal road. It is your decision to choose which part of the city to go to, you can go to the beach, the forest or the parks.
No, you do not need to take a bike so far. In this city they also rent them. In fact, it has been awarded for two consecutive years as the best city for cyclists. For rent you have 2 alternatives, one a little expensive and one too economical: you only have to leave a coin at a bike station as a deposit and then when you return the bicycle, you recover it.
A fact that every traveler should know, is that you can go anywhere in the city and if you get tired, you can take your bicycle and get on the train and back. This city is magical. I’m pretty sure it’s one of the few that lets this do. They take the cyclists very seriously.
