Last Wednesday, 50 of us went for an evening bike ride to celebrate the launch of our Copenhagen Cycle Tracks guide book to Copenhagen, which I wrote with three friends. It was a great night out and fit perfectly with the concept of one of my other babies - The Slow Bicycle Movement. We went for a ride out to the Nordvest neighbourhood, stopping off at various locations we write about in the guide book, including a great Turkish bakery and an impromptu park on an empty lot. There was a poetry reading outside a bar and loads of rolling down cool urban streets and parks, enjoying beers from a cargo bike.
Here's Kristine, one of my co-authors, with her groovy-cool bicycle.
Here's some other friends, including Emma, at far left, whom you may recognise from this previous post.
A nice easy pace, perfect for conversing with friends.
This is Kristine and one of the other co-authors, Simon, on his cool Longjohn cargo bike.

The man carrying the beer is always a popular fellow. There are various ways to acquire beer whilst in motion. You can serve yourself [at left] or you can have it served for you [at right].
You can also get a beer from the cargo bike and then hand it off to your friend, before taking one yourself.
It started to rain a bit so we ducked into a underpass for some more beers and some dancing.
The music was, of course, mobile and propelled along the streets on this Sorte Jernhest cargo bike.
Riding a bike in heels is, of course, incredibly simple. Sometimes, however, it's best to take them off whilst dancing on a bridge in a park, before heading off into town to continue the festivities.
There are some more photos in this Flickr set. Thanks to everyone for a great night out!
