city tour – winter season

During the winter months Copenhagen bares her teeth and becomes much less hospitable to the cycling adventurer. Not to worry, she’s still overflowing with stories to be told and adventures to be had. Days are colder, shorter and darker — be sure to rug up warm for this ride. This tour includes a toasty indoor refreshment stop. And is the worlds most northern all year round urban bike tour.

Cycle through this stunning clean, green urban city with running social commentary from a hot-blooded local. The storytelling will take centre stage as you embark on a spirited adventure with Copenhagen as its illustrious backdrop. Feel the wind in your hair as you come face to face with 1000 years of history, culture and politics. Meet a society founded on the rare and beautiful sight of absolute trust, pioneering in equality, work/life balance and sustainability. A true cultural crash course that will leave you both enlightened and inspired, this tour is more than meets the eye. Come for the story, stay for the ride. Become part of the Copenhagen story.

Each tour is unique and ready to react to the spirit of the day in a heartbeat. All tours will make these stops, weather and season permitting: Medieval Town / Rainbow Square / Grundtvig Academy / Slotsholmen (Castle Island) / Christianborg & Amalienborg Castles / The harbor & its bridges / Christianhavn and the canals / Nyhavn / The Little Mermaid (most days) and Copenslope / Plus several surprise stops (decided on the day) Unpredictability lies at the core of the Bike Mike experience, you’re in for the ride of a lifetime — expect the unexpected. This is not for the faint-hearted. Only join if you have solid cycling skills and are familiar with managing yourself in a hectic urban cycling environment. Strictly only book the tour if you have read my terms: how it works.

"Grundlæggende rejser du jo ud for at møde dig selv. For du kan ikke forstå det, du kommer fra, det, du tager for givet, før du møder noget, der er radikalt anderledes." - Bjarke Ingels.

The words above are in Danish language, It's an interview with Danish architecht Bjarke Ingels. who has designed the new waste-to-energyplant with skislopes on the roof here in Copenhagen. He himself is a serious world traveler. Bjarke Ingels says:

Basically one travel to meet oneself. Because you can't understand what you come from, what you take for granted, before you see and meet something radical differently.

I agree. Thats also why I travel. Well said.

Have you ever wondered why you travel?
