Copenhagen Fashionista on Wheels

Just an average Copenhagener on her bike. Like 55% of the population of Copenhagen - the world's cycling capital - every day.

 

This shot sums up everything that is casual and chic and effortless about Copenhagen bike culture. Style over speed. Elegance over exertion.

Ride, ride, ride. A to B and back again.

In your normal clothes. Like normal people. On a normal bike.

    Locomotive perfection, total cool, aggressively chic. Congratulations!

    Suggestion: de-emphasize the red in the 'Tøj til trolde' sign (or at least the smaller letters below), it's too prominent, IMO, and the traffic light is sufficient for contrast colour.

    @rodeomilano:
    A couple of hundred thousands, although most girls can look good from behind if they try. It's a kind of national Darwinism. What happened was that all the real men went to England some years back and all the wimps stayed behind, so what you see in Copenhagen is the result of a thousand years of fierce, female Darwinian competition.

    Mother Nature is amazing that way: If not for the girls, nobody would want to live in Scandinavia.

    Sorry but acting like a car is not really legal for cyclists. Reading your comment I got very excited about inadvertently NOT having broken the law for 30 years.
    Unfortunately I have: You DO have to go to the opposite corner before turning left: www.familieadvokat.dk/Breve-900/b900-385.htm (Danish)

    BTW: I agree on this being a fantastic picture.

    she's doing the right thing in the photo, apart from using the zebra crossing too much.

    it's call a box turn or a Copenhagen left.

    I've been to Copenhagen on two occasions and cycled each time. I'd thought I'd gone to cycling Valhalla.
