Zen and The Art

of Bikes…

– Cycling in Scandinavia is a way of life, writes Alison Stewart.

I am relieved to learn that, “When we bike, the city does all the talking, when we stop, we do the talking”. Mike’s eccentricity is part of his charm, combined with his passion for Copenhagen and Denmark from a cyclist’s perspective. In a way, his love affair with bikes epitomises all of Scandinavia’s approach to city cycling – it’s a normal way of life.

Hi Mike, I enjoyed this morning’s tour so much, you really bring Copenhagen to life! Thanks for the bike souvenir, I love it! I tracked the ride (including my route from home on a Bycyklen) on Strava and I use a website called relive.cc which turns the rides into videos. Thought I’d share it with you – feel free to use it if you want to. https://www.relive.cc/view/888496116. All the best, Helen Wilkie, Scotland

Hi Michael, Your tour has not only shown me the beauty of Copenhagen but also educated me on the culture and lifestyle of it’s people. And to add the cherry on top, the Venezuelan girl from my tour, Salvy, we ended up hanging out for the rest of my trip. I couldn’t ask for a better time! Thank you again, Till next time. Lisa, NYC

Hi Mike: Thank you so much for a fantastic ride.  I really enjoyed the bike tour – and the pug hugs at the end!  I can’t believe how much of Copenhagen we got to see – it really is 1000 years of history in 3 hours.   I look forward to taking the tour again next time I’m in town.   You have a wonderful way of sharing joy and optimism, and I imagine many of your riders go home inspired to help make the world a better – and perhaps a bit more Danish – place. It could be worse!  cheers, Teresa

Hi Mike, Thank you very much for our ‘Little Mermaid’. It was very nice of you to send it home with Richard. It has brought back very pleasant memories of your lovely city, Copenhagen. We really enjoyed our stay in Copenhagen and it’s almost exactly one year since we were there. Richard loved his tour with you. We are right in the rugby season at the moment so not too much other sport on TV as you can imagine. A husband and wife from Geraldine are heading your way soon. We have suggested maybe a bike tour of Copenhagen with you so they will probably make themselves known if/when they arrive. Maybe one day we will be back and will certainly make contact with you if that happens. Thank you again. Kindest regards, Oliver Bruce (former NZ All Black)

Hi Mike, My husband and I took one of your bike tours in Copenhagen last year and we both have been bitten by the bike bug!  We owned bikes before but nothing too special!  They were very basic and cheap!   My pedal even fell off on my first ride!  Since your bike tour we each now own 2 bikes each , mountain and a road bike!  We bike ride every chance we get!  We think of you often and just wanted to thank you for inspiring us to get into biking!

Mike, Just a quick note to say thank you for an outstanding experience today. I was here for a few days of business from Boulder, Colorado. I thought we were crazy about cycling, but we have nothing on Copenhagen. Very inspiring. I couldn’t resist taking your tour when I found you on the web. I only wish it was longer. Tonight at dinner I recited about 17 stats to my colleagues that I learned from you today – from the date of Denmark’s change to democracy to the the date when Copenhagen will no longer be dependent on fossil fuels.  Thanks for a great day and hope to connect again in the future.

Hi Bike Mike!  Last friday we (4 Belgian girls) did the city bike tour with you and we wanted to let you know that it was the highlight of our trip to Copenhagen. Thx so much for sharing the Danish spirit and street soul with us! I’ve just got one question for you: how do you write “could be worse” in Danish? I just really love that saying and want to share it with my Belgian friends over here. Anyway, keep up the good work, riding bikes with you was inspiring and hyggelig! 😉

Will return to Copenhagen again and try one of your other tours! Thanks for a great day!

Hi Mike, I did your bike tour last Sunday afternoon and I just wanted to write to you to express my heartfelt thanks for providing such a surprising, uplifting, wildly entertaining, and totally authentic experience of your beautiful city. Your finale tribute to ‘Father Denmark’ was especially moving, only topped by your willingness to indulge our group with a Danish folk song! As a formerly committed cyclist who has (in recent years) ‘lost his faith’, I take my hat off to your passion, your exuberance, and your obvious joy for living and the bike. As the French cycling fans might say “Chapeau BikeMike!” – your bike tours should be on the ‘bucket list’ of every global traveler, you really are that good.
Thanks again, Jono Byrne

Dear Mike, Just a quick note to say thank you very much for our very enjoyable bike tour last Saturday (we were the four English guys booked under the name of Sheppard). We all agreed afterwards it was one of the highlights of our short stay. We saw much more of the city and learnt much more of its history than we would have done just wondering about ourselves!
Thank you once again,
Kind regards, Malcolm Adams, UK

Hello Mike, I would like to thank you for your outstanding bicycletour in your fantastic town last saturday. The way you led us trough nearly all the streets of Copenhagen and telling of all aspects of Danish life, culture and history keeps us thinking for weeks!! Your way of using humor and your communication skills gave us a lucky feeling of finding you. It gave so much more than just walking in a beautiful town center. We tell everybody in Holland that you are the cycling tourist office in Copenhagen.
We wish you the very best!

Michael,
Sadly I didn’t get to see your email prior to the start of the tour yesterday, hence my bewilderment and ignorance. Despite that aches and pains today, it was well worthwhile, incredible that such countryside can be so close to a major city. Also incredible how many boats and bikes there are here. Every Dane must own at least of of each, clearly some a lot more. Anyhow thanks again for an incredible time.
Cheers

Hi Mike,
This is Jacquie and Sandy. We want to thank you for the wonderful city tour today. We did not want it to end. It was wonderful. The pace was perfect and the stops were well-thought out. You did a great job. We would like to know if you can recommend a good restaurant somewhere in the city, (preferably near a Metro stop).  We are mainly vegetarians but we eat a little fish like Salmon or tuna. You’re welcome to join us.

Mike,
Here is a link to the photos I took while the bike was being retrieved from the water. I didn’t catch the actual retrieval because I was slow in getting my camera out. Karl and I had a wonderful time on the tour today yesterday –  thanks for everything. Dinner at Noma was fantastic. The cancellation we got in on was for a party of 8 so we were seated with three other couples – one from England, one from Belgium, and one from Norway. Quite the international group! We all got along well, so it made the experience even more special – something we’ll never forget. If you are ever visiting the San Francisco Bay area again, let us know – perhaps we could do a ride together.

Hi Mike
I rushed back to the ship only to find that it leaves at 5pm so I would have had plenty of time to not rush back! doh! I SO enjoyed both tours. You do a fantastic job! I looked round a couple of times at all the relaxed smiling faces of your bikers, you make Copenhagen fantastic for everyone. After yesterday and today, I have personally named Copenhagen my favourite cities out of all the many places I have visited all year. So a huge Thankyou! I’ll hopefully see you again sometime in August when we visit again and I can bring my man along! With great best wishes and blessings on your orange hat!

Hi Mike,
It is Wayne her from the ‘Naki’!! Just want to thank you for the wonderful experience we had on Friday and although it was not my first time in Copenhagen it was differently a much more pleasant experience because of your tour. Just loved your passion for the city and Denmark and the Danish way of being (cannibals, sugar intake, wine & dine, tobacco etc), the passion you have for “The Old Man” H C Andersen whom Alan & I both think you must have some of his genes even though he didn’t marry! as you love telling a story! and of course how Niels Bohr (with the help of Ernest RutherfordJ) helped the Danes to a better & longer life. Didn’t get much of a chance to take you up on some of your recommendations as to what to do / experience while in Copenhagen as we were also visiting friends. We were only on a long weekend break from Stavanger where I now live (for 30yrs), but they are on the list for the next time I am in Copenhagen. Have already recommended your trip for several colleagues whom are planning a trip to Copenhagen this “summer” and I am sure they will be well pleased with your tour also.

We continued our MC tour on Saturday afternoon heading back to Stavanger via Helsingør – Helsinge – Frederikscærk – Hundestad – Sjællands Odde – Århus – Hirtshals and oh what a beautiful country you haveJJ Denmark always reminds me of home as although I went to school and later worked in the ‘Naki (Manaia about 15km from Hawera) my home town is Otorohanga just south of Hamilton. Alan is a Devon boy and he had much the same experience.

Hi Mike,
Back in OZ. Had a great holiday and you helped make Denmark one of the highlights. In retrospect we should have stayed longer but I guess it gives us an excuse to get back there one day. The bike ride was great and your passionate guiding was an inspiration to us both, its great to see someone who loves there country as much as you obviously do. We want to get to Auckland some day in the not too distant future so we may catch up with you there, if not, the offer of a place to stay while you check out our part of Australia is definite. We live right next to the southern ocean, plenty of room, lots of beaches forests and wineries to keep you interested. Hope you are fit and well and we may catch up sometime in the future.

Hi Mike,
I just wanted to say thank you for a fanatastic evening tour last Monday. I have visited Copenhagen a number of times over the last 3 years and spent many a happy evening walking around enjoying the many beautiful sites in the city. On Monday evening I felt this enjoyment of the city was taken to a new level as you introduced me to the heart and spirit of Copenhagen as well as the physical beauty. As you know my work in Denmark is coming to an end so it could be a long time until I return to the city but my memories of it’s beauty will always be in my mind and thanks to your tour it’s spirit will always be in my heart. Many thanks for a memorable evening and all the best for the future.

We are now back in France. This is school holiday and I should see the students next week for their exams. We really enjoyed our stay in Denmark and the students loved the bike tour with you. Thanks a lot for telling us so much about life in Denmark. Copenhagen is also a very nice town and I feel like I would come back with my own family for holidays. We wish you all the best for your project of cycling the Himalayas in September. We hope we can hear about it in the French news! Take care of yourself. Best regards, Nadine, Nantes, France. 
PS: I attach the picture I took of the group before going round the town.

Danes cycle an average of 1,000 kilometres annually per capita and most streets have separated bicycle lanes. One of the best ways to explore Copenhagen, therefore, is on your bike. A morning cycle tour – a peaceful, leisurely whirl which took in the charming medieval old town, Old City Square, Castle Island, Chistiansborg Palace, Nyhavn, the Royal Palace and the Cathedral of Copenhagen – was an ideal way to get my bearings before exploring the city in greater depth on foot. Clearly passionate about his country and its capital, Mike made an otherwise enjoyable trip a particularly memorable one.

Hi Mike,
Thank you. Without your personal journey to realising that you had to follow your passion we would not have had the joy of discovering, in the true sense of the word, how wonderful Copenhagen is. Simply you made us fall in love with the city. You led us through the heart and soul of your home town. However, best of all was being in your company. There was no small talk- on the first stop we got down to discussing meaningful things that matter to you and the rest of Denmark-poltics, history, the stealth but loveable Brits…all done with a terrific sense of self mocking and self deprecation. I will start reading Either/Or in the hope that I get your personal therapist Kierkegaard to sort me out like you. I know that writing here and adding to to your fan club will mean that you will have more people eager to have you guide them- deservedly so-but we will always feel that this was a unique experience just for clare and me. If you ever need a table at Noma, just let me know- I have connections!!!! With warmest regards.

Hi Mike,
It was great to meet you last Saturday. I absolutely fell in love with Copenhagen while I was there for the long weekend. The city, Danish design, the Nordic food and the people watching were all fantastic. I just wanted to drop you a quick line to say that I have not forgotten that I need to email you with my thoughts on a cycling tour for Auckland given it was my home town for 26 years and I am an Auckland girl through and through! As Jennie and I mentioned, we also have friends who are avid cyclists who may also have some helpful hints. I learnt so much on the tour and had a great time. I will be recommending it to my friends who are coming to Copenhagen later in the year. I just read about your cycle over the Himalayas – what a challenge, very inspirational. I love the principle “Attitude is Everything” – I am going to put it up on the wall of my office! Have a great day and I will be back in touch.

The bike tour really helped to orient us to the wonderful city of Copenhagen. Mike’s comments at the talk stops were interesting and insightful. I admired Mike’s ability to keep the large group on the August 2 morning tour together. We had a great time.

My 2 friends and I came to Copenhagen for 4 days in August 2010. Accidently we ran into an add of Mike’s bike tours, and luckily for us went for it! Mike is a wonderful and inspiring man, he has so much information about the city and the world, And he shared it with us and the group in a very moving way. We went on the day city tour and had so much fun that we came the next day for the “behind the scene” night tour. I recommend to everyone to give themselves this gift and see Copenhagen from within on the bikes. it’s easy, and the stories and experiences you have along the way will expand your horizons. We have only one last word to say.

Hi Mike,
I’m the person you took on a private tour of Copenhagen last April 24, with detours to the Danish Jewish Museum and the climb up the church steeple. This is just a belated note to say Thank You again for a wonderful time. I haven’t forgotten what a great host and interesting person you were and I hope to come back to Copenhagen some day––and to take one of your longer bike tours at that time. I planned to send this note a long time ago, but time flew by. Neighbors of mine are planning to go to Copenhagen for their wedding anniversary in October (10th anniversary, I think), and I’ve recommended to them that they take your tour. I hope they take my advice. I’ve also told many other friends and neighbors about you and the great bike tour I had. And, FYI, I recently read some stories that reminded me of you and your tours. The links are below. Please let me know if you are ever visiting New York City (Manhattan). I would enjoy meeting you there…or in Hoboken, NJ, where I live, if you would take the quick ferry ride across the Hudson River. I hope all’s well with you.

Dear Mike,
I wanted to let you know that Cheapflights.com, the leading site for finding and publishing flight deals, recently featured Copenhagen in our recent “Top Ten Places to Bike across the World” blog feature and press release. Our “Top Ten” lists are quite popular, as they are read by thousands of people and often featured in other media outlets. You can find our biking destinations list here: http://news.cheapflights.com/2010/07/top-10-places-to-bike-around-the-world/, Since yours is the definitive site on biking Copenhagen, I thought you’d appreciate knowing how much we – and our readers – think of Copenhagen as a travel destination. I just discovered BikeCopenhagenWithMike.dk and thought it’s one of the best biking-tourism sites I’ve seen; it’s well designed, navigable, and has excellent written and visual content. Your cancer story was particularly poignant and I also enjoyed the photo of your feathered “boss.”

Dear Michael,
Thank you for a wonderful bike ride. It was really a spectacular experience. I thought I would share this story with you. When my daughter Anna, now 21, was about 3 or 4 years old, her father was exasperated at not finding his keys. “I have looked everywhere!” says Simon. Anna replied. “No you haven’t, you haven’t looked in the place where they are!” This is a simple statement from a child. But I take it further. As soon as you focus your mind on the object, rather than panic that there is disorder, the solution is always there. When I lose something, I try to be really quiet and to acknowledge the one Mind who knows all and as man is his reflection man also then knows. Mary Bake Eddy talks about the one Mind in her book Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures provides wonderful insights for living. I would encourage you to read the book. Best wishes, Caroline from Johannesburg

We have recently returned home from a Baltic cruise and our day in Copenhagen was wonderful with the expert guidance of Mike and his City Tour. Both Ron and I were extremely pleased with our tour and found the sites we visited and information that Mike provided to be among the highlights of our cruise and the best bike tour we took part in (we did several others). I know we saw parts of Copenhagen we never would have on any other tour or on our own, so thank you Mike for a wonderful experience. Continued good health to you!

Greetings from the mountains of western NC, I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you how much we enjoyed the day biking with you. That was one of the high points of the trip for me. Mr. Forrister tells me you had surgery and the outcome was good. I wish you a speedy recovery and a clean bill of health. Take care,

Mike,
Both my husband and I wish you a speedy recovery from your surgery. We hope you are doing well and will soon be back on your bike and ride down the “C” germs. We will be in Copenhagen on June 2nd and were planning on seeing your wonderful city by way of your tour. Hopefully that will still happen, but if not, we will hopefully be able to find an alternate tour. Take care of yourself.

My best wishes for your swift recovery from surgery – My grandaughter and I had planned to Bike with Mike next week (we are from Maryland and North Carolina – US)- so I am very sorry to read that you are out of commission for a few weeks. Hopefully you will recover quickly and be back bicycling on the streets of Copenhagen soon.

Compliments, Mike,
On Tuesday, April 13, you conducted a bike tour of Copenhagen for my student group. I want you to know how much all of us enjoyed seeing Copenhagen by bicycle. The tour you provided us truly enhanced what we had studied about Denmark in the class I taught by helping us piece together how Denmark’s past has helped create the modern state that it is today. We certainly appreciate your patience with us. Your tour of the city is an excellent adventure and one I hope I can experience again when I return to Copenhagen. Thank you for how you enriched my students’ experience in Denmark.

We are planning to take your city tour at the end of may. We are also interested in cycling to Helsignor from Copenhagen. Is that a doable trip over a couple of days visiting the Louisiana Museum and Blixen House along the way? Is it likely to be a windy route? Should I make a reservation for the city tour if we are a group of four?
Thanks, Bob Cox

I just very recently went on a tour with Mike and it was one of the most fun and greatest experiences of my life. It showed the true side of Copenhagen from a great perspective and Bike Mike really knows his stuff while being safe and fun.

We went on a bike tour of Copenhagen with Mike last week (late March). I am not a great cyclist and was a bit nervous, but I immediately felt safe in the care of Mike. He suited us up with bikes and helmets, explained how he does his tours – regular stops at key areas where he tells interesting and entertaining anecdotes about the city – and off we went. Copenhagen is made for cyclists, so we had absolutely no trouble with traffic or hills (there aren’t any). Mike is a huge asset to the city of Copenhagen – he has a phenomenal knowledge of its history and deep devotion to its story. Throughout the day, Mike showed us parts of the city we simply wouldn’t have seen any way else. By the time we got to the end, we’d learned a huge amount, had a spectacular day out, and made a friend in Mike. I can’t recommend his tours more highly.

Rainy and cold March day and I was the only customer; would Mike still run the tour? Yes he would – and it was so enjoyable. Mike is great company – knowledgable, intelligent, good-humoured and happy to tailor the information to the interest of his customers. One of the best city tours I’ve been on.(the rain cleared). Copenhagen is a wonderful city and by bike is certainly the best way to see it.
