Girl Warmer / Beer Cooler

Amelia

This Copenhagen girl knows that having a warm coat that is enjoyable to wear, makes winter easier to bear. Add to that, the fact that the six-pack in her bicycle basket will be nicely cold when she arrives at her friends on this saturday evening. Cheers!

Oh, I forgot to say hi! I am new here, - or rather, my writing is. You may have seen some of my pics here during this fall, but now Mikael asked me if I wanted to do my own blogging. Basically I just enjoy taking pictures, but bicyclists frequently end up at the other end of my lens.
See you around!

In Copenhagen, what is the law regarding alcohol consumption while riding a bicycle?

If you seem to be a danger to yourself or others, the police (or somebody else) will probably ask you to walk your bike home. So no law, as far as I am informed, and it seems to work just fine.

Like in most countries there are no laws stopping you from drinking in public. And like Lars said, it's the same on a bike or on a sidewalk.

Now that is what I call multi-tasking ;-)

In many locales in the US public consumption of alcohol is illegal. You can drink it in a restaurant setting, but not walking down a street...damn puritanical laws! I once made the mistake of sitting on the outside of the rail at a local deli/cafe with a beer in my hand. Cost me $200 in fines and court costs.

I think it is illegal here.
I had a discussion with a policeman on the way back from our work christmas do in the early hours of sunday.
He stopped me and asked if I knew the laws relating to being drunk in charge of a bicycle.
I replied that I didn't, but would keep a sharp eye out for anything suspicious.
I carried the whole conversation off with, I feel, a certain amount of panache, and he waved me on.
Which was good of him as I was wearing black-tie and a father christmas hat, with one of the nurses perched on the parcel rack.
Three cheers for the boys in blue.

But hey, you can always brown-bag it and be "that person"... stick it to the Puritans?

I love the picture. :) I'm definitely excited to see more, I love that the blog is expanding.

While it isn't illegal to drink and bike in Denmark, I think it is worth mentioning that the girl just appears to be transporting the beer. No doubt going to a julefrokost (Christmas party) of sorts.

I have seen some local ordinances where it is illegal to transport alcohol containing beverages without them being covered, but that place was the exception rather than the rule.

It might even be a six-pack of mineral water, hehe.

Here in Ireland it's illegal to drink on streets :( we have no smoking allowed in workplaces (including pubs and restaurants) so unless theyy provide an outside area, people must go outside to smoke sans drink. not sure what the law is on cycling after drinking, but usually only have a few if I'm biking home :)

If this is a transport, why not transport Your belongings to any place You want? Beer, water, whisky, wine, cakes, vodka... The most important is - not to bring danger to others and Yourself.

Great and full of life picture!
