People of Copenhagen lead very active lives. Although there is public transport, most Danes just ride their bikes to work. It's not just healthy for you, but good for the environment, and Scandinavians like to take care of it. Renting a bike allows you to experience the city in a unique way for a tourist, like a local, and to get to know the city very well.
If you want to rent a bike and do a good deed at the same time, you should know that Baiskeli's profits go to African countries. Meaning 'bicycle' in Swahili, these second hand bikes can come handy when exploring Copenhagen. Here you can also buy a bike, new or used.
Is there a better transport than a bike? We think not, and the Danes agree. Bycyklen is public bike share and can be found all over the city. They are very easy to use, all you need to do is create an account at bycyklen.dk or on the tablet attached to the bike and you can start cycling.
