Portraits of Cyclists - Sofie: “Copenhagen has a nice dynamic thanks of the cyclists riding in the streets"

Sofie

“I'm from Copenhagen. I cycle every day with this second-hand bike. Cycling does cost anything and it's a good way to exercise, so I don't even have to think about going to the gym.

I like cycling in Nørrebrogade, since the bike lanes are extremely wide. I also appreciate cycling along the lakes, on the bike lane covered by the trees.

I think that in Copenhagen, you have a nice dynamic thanks of the cyclists riding in the streets and you don't find it in other city.”

“What is the funniest memory from your childhood related to cycling?”
“A friend and I liked riding our bikes without the hands on the handlebar. But an old man living in the street was always annoyed seeing us doing that. He was always shouting that it was dangerous and he did not want to call the ambulance. But we never stop doing it."
