Guidance on tour?
Every tour includes a number of "talk-stops", where we stop and get off the bikes for a talk of history, places of interest, present life in Copenhagen, what's coming up until our next "talk-stop", your questions and comments etc.
"When we bike Copenhagen does all the talking, when we stop we do the talking". No verbal guidance at all between the stops on the bike tours. This is to enhance the enjoyment and sharpen the mind for taking in the passing urban landscape. Inner serenity is beautiful and suits very much a bike tour experience. Such are the values when touring on the Bike Mike Tours.
"I am only responsible for what I say, not for what you understand".
Tour pace and difficulty?
All tours are leisurely and relaxed paced.
The City bike tour is only approx. 12 km, Green City bike tour covers about 30 km and Evening bike tour approx. 25 km.
Everyone without health problems can manage the City bike tour. Only you will know if you can manage a bike ride covering about 25 km over a few hours.
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?
Yes they can. Many children every year enjoy themselves on the bike tour. Always make sure you book your bike tour when traveling with children and remember to specify age and height of children. Kindly notice, that you as parent are responsible for your child’s safety on the bike tour.
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.
