Cycling with Children in The Hague


In The Hague (seat of government in the Netherlands), during the sunny Easter weekend, families were out, cycling with their children seating in the front box...

Rotterdam - Never Alone on my Bicycle


When you ride in a city designed for bikes, you can consider cycling as a moment you can share with friends

Rotterdam - Never alone on my bike


or with your dog
Rotterdam - Never alone on my bike


or with your girlfriend

or with your daughter

or with someone texting that you'll arrive soon.

In case you have no mate with you that day, you have room for your luggage...

... or many pizzas for your friends.

Beautiful Cycle Bridges

Copenhagen Bikehaven by Mellbin - Bike Cycle Bicycle - 2015 - 0136

Central Copenhagen is criss-crossed by small bridges that traverse to the Island of Amager and the many canals of the old city harbor. The last years have added several dedicated cycle bridges. Above: The newest cyclist-only bridge "Cykelslangen" (The Cycle Snake). Below: One of Copenhagens Oldest bridges "Stormbroen" (The Storm Bridge) with The Marble Bridge behind. Like most bridges Stormbroen has been given dedicated bike lanes on both sides.

Pushing the Flood Gates

Copenhagen Bikehaven by Mellbin - Bike Cycle Bicycle - 2011 - 0138

True fact: Copenhagen skies mostly hold their rainy breath back during the morning and afternoon rush hours. However, I'm not sure all Copenhagen Cyclists would agree with the stats. And with all the rain we get you can - and will - be caught out from time to time. Above: Soaked to the skin. Below: Prepared for the worst.

Cycling to the Stars

Copenhagen Bikehaven by Mellbin - Bike Cycle Bicycle - 2015 - 0249

In 2014 Danes broke two decades of cycling stats to reach 3.5 Billion Kilometers. That's easily enough to reach Uranus. Or ride 15 times to Mars. Or go over 8.000 times to the Moon. Its also almost 10% more than Danes biked last year.

Copenhagen Bikehaven by Mellbin - Bike Cycle Bicycle - 2015 - 0248


Copenhagen is solidly in the lead after cycles have overtaken both cars and public transport as the preferred method of Copenhagen commuting. Over the last 25 years the number of Danes cycling into Copenhagen has doubled.
Copenhagen Bikehaven by Mellbin - Bike Cycle Bicycle - 2015 - 0247


Dedicated Cycle infrastructure plays a big role in this. Some of the new Super Cycle Highways have been a huge success attracting over 50% more commuters every day.
Copenhagen Bikehaven by Mellbin - Bike Cycle Bicycle - 2015 - 0250


Weather also makes a difference. 2014 was kind to Danish cyclists. Still the jump is noticible.
