Skirting the Issue

Copenhagen Supermum
Springtime is chic cycling time in Copenhagen and our Copenhagen supermums are on the front lines of chic.

The bike is a Christiania Bike and, like so many Copenhageners, it is personalised in a cosy, personal way, no doubt by the kids who use it. Many people just paint the cargo box themselves, but one of the many cargo bike companies here - Bellabike - have taken graphics to a new level with their customised folie design. See their website for inspiration - it's in Danish but photos speak volumes.

This Copenhagener is waiting in the left turn lane on the segregated bike lane and hopped off to chat with her child in the cargo box. She is checking for traffic before hopping back up onto the seat. Note the bike traffic light for bikes turning left.

Pink n Green
Springtime is also colourtime. Pink and green must be seen. I can't actually see what brand the bike is. It looks a bit worn so it might be an older model, probably one of the many generic brands. She has however, smashing Reelights on the wheels. A pleasant mix of old and new.

I have Reelights too! They were recommended by a Danish cycling enthusisast as well! They took a damn long time coming into my local cycle shop though. ;-)

Love that matte green bike. So chic.
