Not long ago we were on a little Ride in Style here in Copenhagen. Normally, bike rides are something that are associated with Emerging Bicycle Cultures. For Copenhageners it's usually just A2B on our trusty iron horses.
We've been on many a bike ride around the world in our Cycle Chic and Copenhagenize work but this one was a little different. It was very Copenhagen. The cool bike design shop Biker's Remix organised a cool little tour one Saturday. On bikes, of course, 'cause that's the way we all roll here, but with focus on design, food and drink. A pleasant afternoon with fellow Copenhageners cruising our beloved Copenhagen.
First stop was the Biker's Remix showroom to check out cool designed bicycles and to sample the first sip of the day (above left).
Onward we rolled. To visit design studio MAIK in the Vesterbro neighbourhood.
MAIK dished up some beers and we were invited to participate in a design process brainstorm.
Back to the streets we climbed.
It was time for ice cream.
We stopped at Oswald's Ice Cream Bar.
And off we went. To the Nørrebro neighbourhood. With beverages, of course. This is Denmark, not Afghanistan.
Next stop was Urban Room No. 11. The groovy little design shop in Nørrebro. They dished up coffee and cake for us.
We were never in a hurry. When it was time to leave, it just felt right.
We visited the workshop of the coolest bicycle designer in the Kingdom. Cykelmageren (The Bike Maker), for more snacks and refreshments and a look at Rasmus' brilliant crafted bikes and bits of bikes.
Then we returned to Vesterbro, to visit the Vess art gallery. It was now cocktail time.
We wrapped up the afternoon back where we started, at Kødbyens Deli in the Meatpacking District, for chili con carne and beers.
Some of our lovely friends took their leave of us, as above, and others headed out for the evening at a bar in the centre of the city.
Thanks to Biker's Remix for a brilliant day out with friends, design, sweet and savoury food, refreshing beverages and a super concept.
We'll roll with you anytime.
