Copenhagen, Denmark


By bicycle

Being the most popular means of travel amongst the people of Copenhagen, biking can even be the fastest way to go about the city if you pedal fast enough. In order to facilitate bikers, separate lanes are established on main roads alongside proper traffic lanes. Mainly for the tourists, there is a free-public bike service available which they can use simply by inserting a 20 Kr coin in the electronic system. However, the bike is only to be used within the boundaries of the inner city. An infringement of rules would lead to a penalty and/or fines of over 1000 Kr. The public offers you a pay-back guarantee once you return the bike to its stand. It is a Copenhagen tradition to customize these bikes. In 1997, President Clinton was gifted a customized bike as a souvenir when he visited the city. Apart from that, you also have an option of renting a bicycle.
