Portraits of cyclists - Karen: “I'm wearing my “safe outfit”


I'm from Copenhagen. I cycle every day on my old bicycle. It's how I get around in the city. I like biking around in Christianshavn.

Today, I'm wearing my “safe outfit”. It's my all black outfit. I know that I can go where I want and do what I want wearing these clothes.

Do you remember the first day you cycled alone?”

Yes, of course. I lived in Østerbro, my mum was running next to me holding the stick tied at the back on the bike and when I turned my head I realized that she was not here anymore. I was cycling by myself.”
