Bikes and Trains and Lifts Oh My

This is a cyclist heading down the lift that leads to the metro station at Fasanvej. Given the number of bikes in this city it's not surprising that citizens are allowed to transport them on the metro [although not during rush hour], the local trains as well as the regional trains.

The latter two have bike compartments with bike racks for this purpose. On the metro the trips are shorter so you just have to stand up with your bike:

There are, needless to say, lifts at every station for bikes, the elderly and prams. Or anyone else who needs a ride down to the platform. Some people, when it's not too busy, will just chuck their bike on the escalator.

Alternatively, every taxi in the nation is equipped with bike racks so one or two bikes can be transported if need be.
