Welcome to Copenhagen

Accelerate
Another Great Moment in Cycling. It's that moment we love so much here on Cycle Chic. Green light. Muscles tense. Bicycle propelled forward. Momentum achieved. Continue on.
And look frightfully fashionable while doing so. Ah, Copenhagen.

Any ideas for what this magical moment could be called? The initial thrust off the light? We've discussed it here at the blog, but couldn't come up with a fine, good name for it.

Anyway, here's today's photographic offerings from the bike lanes of Copenhagen:
Musical Ride
Musical ride. Copenhagen cellos prefer being transported by bike. We've asked them. 9 out of 10 confirmed it.
Red Bag Red Coat
Red Bag, Red Coat. Both heading home on the bike lanes.
Daily Copenhagen Supermum
Yet another Copenhagen supermum. Superstylish. Supercool. Super mum.

And with Flickr's new video function, we offer you this. The Art of Waiting For The Light To Change in Copenhagen:

How about "The Offy"?

Chic Auzzie slang.

Raquel said...

When will you upload a video about copenhague cycle chic making of?? I am very interesting about !

jakeszy said...

Why is that, to be chic, the bike must be retro, with the rider a petit girl wearing over sized sun glasses and red heals? True this is very chic but let me give you another scenario; A male ridding a present day road bike (no tassels, high heals, or basket) with a French Riviera backdrop. Sounds chic with a masculine, sporty twist…right?

Different cycling style from here, in Japan. Look nicer overthere.
I, myself, hate cycling. Really! But who knows, maybe someday, I won't have choice... ANyway really good looking blog would almost make me want to ride!

kool blog.
i must say Copenhagen is a hell of a place. This is definitely best way to cure things like fossil fuel depletion and global warming, cycling with style makes more attractive than other things.

thanks for all your comments and welcome to all the new readers.

Chic isn't just women. Men can be just as chic.

The Offy - great one!
Yellow light, red light, chic! - another good offering.

As I can see on the photos, Copenhagen bear resemblance to Budapest's beautiful buildings.

I usually bike not in the city but in the countryside.

Those black and white photos are really striking!

There's a sculpture in Manchester (UK) called 'The B of the Bang'- http://www.bofthebang.com/. The British sprinter Linford Christie claimed that was the moment he left the blocks.

In that spirit, may I suggest... no, not 'The G of the Green' (how unchic!), but 'The E of the Green'? ;)

Or even 'The N of...'? :D

Re your wanted word...

'takeoff' isn't quite right is it...
lift off? foot off? no no ...

'to go to wheel'
The light turned green and she went to wheel ....

hmmm not convinced.

Will sleep on it. Perhaps something better will bubble up.

alan said...

lovely photography, nice to read about something in Copenhagen that isn't about weed, prostitution or jihadists.

babelouise said...

Lissen up Zak, don't be letting all the compliments go to your head now. Ya need to keep your focus as "Bike Advocacy in High Heels", ie: girls on bikes.

What happened Zak? Did your site get featured on the cover of Vogue? It would seem so from the amount of comments recently. I'm glad for more readers and hopefully chic cyclists.

Zakkaliciousness said...
