Rainy days in Copenhagen

In the middle of my visit to Copenhagen I was treated to one of their famous Baltic low-pressure areas, which brought thirty-six consecutive hours of drenching rainfall.

This had a somewhat dampening effect on bicycle traffic. Instead of the usual 500,000 there were only about 300,000 cyclists on the streets (my estimate), which was a noticeable reduction but still more than you’ve ever seen in your life if you happen to come from some over-motorized country.

My photos and text in this post are from 2009. I arranged them here in 2019.

  1. I was last in Copenhagen in September 2011 for the UCI Road World Championships and couldn’t get over the number of cyclists. It much reminded me of Amsterdam.
