how it works

i am not just another #$@%&*! bike tour guide. I am bike mike.

bike mike’s circle6 commandments:

i trust that you…

1. Are prepared to go with the flow. My tours have been known to go off the beaten track and may run overtime. If this doesn’t work for you I suggest you go elsewhere.

2. Can safely handle yourself on a bicycle in a foreign urban environment. This is not a lesson in riding bikes.

3. Have a spirit for adventure and a hunger to learn about the ins and outs of Copenhagen.

4. Understand that when we bike Copenhagen does all the talking. There is no verbal guidance while we are riding.

5. Respect my bikes, my city and my straight-shooting way with words.

6. In the interests of maximising your safety you must adopt the local spirit — respect the foundations of our cycling culture and ride like we do. Be cycle-smart, be mindful of others and keep out of their way. Stay with the group.

If you’re after a conventional bike tour with a parrot-robot guide then this is not for you. This is a unique experience for those with a spirit for adventure and a passion for cycling. My tours side-step mainstream tourist crap and narrow in on the real and gritty goodness. Expect local flair with an overflow of heart, soul and passion. Lets get this straight: I’ll tell you what the official guides won’t. There will be words of politics, sex, and rock ‘n’ roll. This is not for the faint-hearted.

This straight-shooting madness is paired only with places of unrivalled beauty — those that where words are meaningless. I want to share the word as seen through my eyes — the good, the bad and the ugly. My focus is to provide an uninterrupted cycling story tale that looks below the surface and into the soul of my city. There’s more to these streets than meets the eye. Explore urban Copenhagen in bloom as we unearth the rough edges and the roads less travelled.

As the streets live and breathe, no two tours will ever be the same. My wild, adventurous spirit will take us off the beaten track so good cycling skills are an absolute must. If you’re after a tour on a silver platter along and a guide to hold your hand then I’m not your guy.

Here’s what you can expect when you’re rolling with me: No shit, just good vibes and great times. No bikemike pampering of high maintenance personalities. Crazy? Yes. Politically correct? No.

Unpredictability lies at the core of the Bike Mike experience — you’re in for the ride of a lifetime. Welcome to the beating heart of my two-wheeled rollercoaster.

Ask someone who knows…

“Loved our bike tour with you today, Mike! Your lively, intelligent, and informed commentary had a great blend of history, politics, and philosophy. I will recommend your tour to others! We also thank you for recommending Cap Horn restaurant – it was lovely. We couldn’t get in to No. 2. Carry on!”
