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.

Some nations play the inequality game. Here in Denmark most of us support the equality game. Have done so for generations and show that every time we vote and put new parliaments together - with a voter turnout around 85 to 90%. Why is it that nations with focus on inequality have low voter turnouts? ... See MoreSee Less

Foggy day on Copenhagen bike lanes. Winter season is here. Bike tours run five days weekly at 10:00, no tours on Tuesdays & Wednesdays during winter season. But despite the unfriendly weather, nothing beats an urban cycle journey to get a prime feel for a place. Lea & Brooke from Seattle smiling after todays tour through misty Copenhagen conditions. I smile because I get a boost from the trust people like Lea & Brooke show me when joining my Copenhagen tour. Its an honor and beautiful to be fortunate to share discovery time together with great folks like Lea & Brooke. Thanks for coming along 👍🚲🚲🚲🇺🇸🇩🇰🙏🏻😜 ... See MoreSee Less
