Urban Exchange of Tension





Cycling in Copenhagen is a relaxed affair, but even on a late summer afternoon the tension can rise. Make sure you use hand signals when turning right...

Dungaree Dress Jamboree


It's the beginning of September and we're still getting moments of aching sunshine in Copenhagen. Meanwhile, she's happy and effortlessly cycling with a dungaree on, navy blue stripes flattering her olive green bike and marmalade specs matching her back tire.

Text



Throwing it back to Summer 2007. Nine years ago, we spotted ombré girl texting in her sandal heels. Year the first iphone was released.

Sending a quick text message from the bike lane.
A hefty fine if caught, but it's rarely enforced.

Two generations of Copenhagen cyclists in the afternoon sun.

Bike lanes often painted blue where they cross an intersection. It increases awareness and visibility for the cars and trucks.

The Impossible Length of Autumn Bicycle Shadows

Ah. Nordic autumn light. #copenhagen #streetphotography #cyclechic Looooong cyclist shadow in the Nordic light #shadow #copenhagen
It's that season again. We're transitioning into winter. It's hard to describe Nordic light. It changes radically throughout the year and has a thousand variations. All beautiful. In autumn - and spring - there are many signals that we're changing seasons. One of them is the growing length of the shadows as the sun hangs lower in the sky.

Shadows become impossibly long.
Cyclist Shadows
So long that it sometimes feels like they wrap around the whole world and you have to chase yourself down the cycle tracks.
Bike Lane Rally
The morning light is crisper and sharper than ever. Your shadow follows you along as you squint into the sunrise.
Longshadow Chasing
Shadows of this length make you contemplate yourself and your size on the urban landscape.
Bikeshadows, Bikeshadows Bicycle Freedom
You're often much larger than life.
Lovely Lady Longshadow
The quality of the light offers up shadows that are sharply defined around the edges.
Dual Shadowism

Larger Than Life
You often can't help but notice yourself on the urban landscape.
Nordic Evenings
Sometimes your shadow chases you, sometimes you follow your shadow through the city.
Overtaking
The length of time it takes to overtake another bicycle user increases drastically when your shadows are this long.

Wartime
Nordic light and it's accompanying shadows are timeless. Here a famous photograph from Tage Christiansen during the 1940s.

So Simple - So Stylish

A little grey, black & pink with a stroke of sun. Just rolling quietly by. Copenhagen summer perfection. I wish all cyclists could enjoy the same relaxed ride.


Happy Cycling!

Ultra Cargo Bike

Maybe the largest cargo bikes I have ever seen in Copenhagen. The wooden hold is very cool. I imagine its a bike-able shop for selling food or drinks.


Happy Cycling!
