Find Yourself in Copenhagen
Simple, really. I pointed the camera out the window for 45 minutes one morning. From about 08:00. It was mostly for my own anthropological aims, but I figured I'd whip it into a film. It's long - 14 min - but I put some nice music on. Four different tracks. And here's the funny thing. The vast variety of citizens on bicycles here is always amazing. All age and wage brackets. Truly universal.
Which cyclist reflects who you are or how you ride - or you would ride if you did? Maybe not everyone can see themselves reflected in the Copenhagen bicycle culture but I'll bet that many can. There's over 420 to choose from.
Watch the film and let us know in the comments. I think I'm a combination of the chap at the front at 3:39 and the chap at 5:10.
While you're at it, here's some fun. Watch out for the following:
- A big bouquet of flowers in the basket.
- Someone eating an apple.
- Some reading on their bike
- A postman
