It’s fascinating to watch this city work. People in Denmark are incredibly fit ya’ll! No joke, I thought I walked fast… nope, serve me up some humble pie because people in their 80’s are walking past me on the street. Ask my friends or family, most would tell you they’d prefer if I slow down, but this wasn’t the case here.
By walking the city, I enjoyed watching the locals in their day-to-day routines. In the morning on the way to work, there are six rows of bikes lined up in the bike lane at stoplights. Parents bike their kids around (like 5-6 year olds), and two of them at the same time! The bike in the rain, the ice, the snow… and of course nice weather! Lines and lines of bikes are parked in front of buildings, apartment complexes, and large lots near the metro stations.
It’s a way of life here in Copenhagen and more power to these folks. While cycling is just a part of Danish everyday life, it was something that caught my eye right from the start. Next time I visit, I plan to partake in their way of life and rent a bike!
