Barcelona - Copenhagen
Cycle Chic™'s favourite Barcelonan, Txell from Barcelona Cycle Chic, is in Copenhagen - as we speak. Like many northern European capitals the bulk of the tourist visits happen between April and October. Txell has been here before and she was keen to see Copenhagen "off-season". It's almost a shame to take the girl out of Barcelona (temperature yesterday 20C) and transplant her to Copenhagen in December (temperature yesterday -5C with snow). But Txell is braving the weather like a true Cycle Chicista. In wicked heels, of course.
The Vikings sailed throughout Europe back in the day, including exploring the rivers in Catalonia, so perhaps a couple of her genes originate with Viking visitors to Catalonia.
Furry hats with earflaps are all the rage this winter in Copenhagen and Txell is keeping up with the Copentrendiness with hers. Plus it's super warm. Which is handy.
She got a bike from the good people at Baisikeli, which you should, too, if you ever come to town.
