Safety on tour?
Everything is done to look after the safety of the group, but your bike skills and attention to the road ahead is vital for a safe journey. Mike bikes along with more than 50 years of bike experience, but he can’t control your bike: You bike at your own responsibility. Your bike is always well maintained and every tour has a brief introduction of how to stay safe on tour. Helmet is not compulsory in Denmark, but is an option if you choose so.
On rare occasions weather conditions might be of a character that will cancel the bike tour. If cancellations happen, please understand it is due to protect your health / safety, thank you.
Can children come along on the bike tours?
No children below 14 years are allowed on any of the bike tours.
Any tours if it rains?
Yes, bike tours go out in rain and shine except on rare occasions, when extreme weather conditions prevails.
During summer – May, June, July, August, September inclusive – Copenhagen only receives little rain, which mostly drops down in very short lived showers. Nothing to worry about.
During months of February, March, April, October, November and December bike tours will be cancelled if full day rain forecasted. The mixture of cold weather and cold rain has to be treated with respect for our health and safety on roads. Please understand this if you arrive and the bike tour is cancelled.
Dresscode during winter months?
During months of February, March and December weather can be extreme cold. In extreme cold weather conditions - subzero celcius - you won't be allowed on tour unless you are dressed appropriately to handle cycling outdoors for 2 1/2 hours. This include as a minimum for your dresscode: a warm top, warm gloves, warm footwear and a good scarf. Dropping of temperature to below zero celcius is often accompanied by an icy, cold wind arriving from the Artic region. The impact from such winds will often see the windchill factor take the temperature below -15 celcius, despite the reading only goes down to minus 3. Then its too cold for cycling in more than two hours.
Please bear in mind too, that the locals you see cycling in the streets of Copenhagen on average on spend 10 - 15 minutes on their bike before they disappear quickly into their warm office.
