Red Bicycle Springtime

Definately Spring
Springtime in Copenhagen. On the cusp of flowery dresses and a sea of bare legs.
Red Ride
What is it about red bicycles? Wouldn't ride one myself, but my goodness they are fine.
Springtime Flower and Beer
Two more sure signs of spring in Copenhagen. A fresh flower in a bicycle basket and a six pack of beer in the hand of a man heading down to his mates on the canal.

I have the same comment for the beer and the young woman's stockinged legs: GULP!!

Nothing wrong with long legs. Heineken is not my choice of beer though ;-)

Also on the cusp of a completely flat rear tire! However, the photo and subject are simply beautiful. Thanks (as always) for sharing.

I love the red cyclist too.

But, as I take a bite out of the apple of knowledge, uh, her saddle is a little low. Your knee is supposed to be just about straight on the downstroke. And the rear tyre needs more air. Just fixing these minor details makes a big difference.

Finally, a brisk pedalling rate on a low gear is great for getting up hills. It's almost like adding electric assist.

Funny, I didn't notice the flat rear tire, the low saddle ... the bike...... ;o)

I think I know why everyone looks beautiful in these photos. All the less than average looking people must be hiding in the cars.

Here in London we can do red bicycles AND flower transport... This from a couple of weeks ago at Columbia Road in Hackney. http://twitpic.com/2ckfs

@Martin - you and me both :-) There was a bike in that picture? Red, you say?

I know this is the cycle chic blog, but that rear tire is soooo flat. That's like a +10kph head wind all the time.
