Copenhagen is often described as “a city of cyclists” or “the world’s cycling capital”, but you will also hear the opinion that there aren’t any “cyclists” in Copenhagen, just normal people wearing normal clothes who use bicycles daily as their main form of transportation.
Their argument is that they also use toothbrushes to brush their teeth and vacuum cleaners to clean their floors, but that doesn’t make them toothbrushists or vacuum-cleanerists, does it?
Whichever way you take it, this is a great city to cycle around in, and the people who do it are visibly healthy and energized when they arrive at work or wherever they’re going.
