Dogs on Bikes
As Copenhagen's resident bicycle anthropologist for the past three years, I've seemed to have acquired the ability to spot subtle changes on the bicycle landscape. Some are easy to determine and even to explain, but this one is tricky.
Copenhageners have transported pets by bicycles since the bicycle was invented. It's nothing new. However this summer I seem to be seeing a lot more dogs on bicycles. I haven't been able to find any reference to an increase in sales of dogs and the Paris Hilton-inspired 'accessory dog' trend died off a year or so ago so I can't really explain it.
Which doesn't make it any less aesthetic to look at.
Here you can play Find the Dog.
And here are a couple of shots from Amsterdam from our Amsterdam Cycle Chic set.
