Imminent Longshadow Days

Dreamy Evening Light
I don't wish to see the end of summer. Yes, I'm living in the wrong country. However there are a number of aesthetic elements to the autumn, if you choose to see them. The impossibly long Nordic shadows, for one. Dreamlike extensions of ourselves. Whether they tag along behind or they lead the way.
Two Strangers
They're not here quite yet. We'll have to wait a month or so for their arrival.

thanks for cheering me up with your lovely take on life and cycling.
I had a sh!t cycle to work involving a collision with an iPed who tried to blame me for his aimless wanderings in the road!

I want to move to Copenhagen!

Dear Mikael, I'm a new Danish resident and I would like to know what size of bike fits a person that is 1m58?

Thank you.

I've been enjoying the long shadows and last gasp of summer at our little river beach in the mountains of western canada. Thanks for sharing yours!

@Niki, the size of bike you should have doesn't only depend on your height - it also depends on how long your legs are in relation to your upper body.
When you go to an actual bikeshop, they should be able to measure your size and recommend you a bike.

In short, your inseam x 2/3 = the frame-size (in cm)
(There are other things to take into consideration, though.)
