Copenhagen: Sundays Behind Handlebars #18

Sundays Behind Handlebars no. whopping 18 - awesome!

During these summer months, we are continuing with these longer rides. It's hot, it's sunny, it's beautiful outside in the Danish summer!

This time we are exploring the plains and paths of Western Amager. And area that too many - even Copenhageners - doesn't seem to have too much to offer. But that is actually what is so interesting about this place. We are in for a treat: long stretches off road through the plains with grassing cows and horses, and beautiful bicycle paths right by the water. I think you will be surprised!

Once again, we will roll out from Wecycle Copenhagen on Islands Brygge at 12:00, and return 2-3 hours later for a refreshment.

Chasing Giants

In 2016, six giants from another world found their way to Denmark with aid from Danish artist Thomas Dambo. Teddy, Oscar, Louis, Tilde, Thomas & Trine decided to take took refuge outside of Copenhagen and find peace in the Danish nature.

On Sunday the 11th of August we are going to pay 'The Forgotten Giants' a visit.

There will be people at Wecycle Copenhagen from 11:30 for pre-ride coffee, and at 12:00 we ride out and begin our search for the giants. We will be back at the café some hours later depending on the pace.

About the ride:
This ride is harder and more demanding than the usual Behind Handlebars rides. The total distance is +60km, and therefore the pace will also be faster than usual.

It is free to join, but make sure to attend the event and 'like' Behind Handlebars in order to stay updated!

The route will be uploaded here before the ride.

🎄🚴❄ RIDIN' AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE ❄🚴🎄

The first year of Sundays Behind Handlebars in Copenhagen went by in a flash, and I first of all owe a big fat THANKS to everyone who has participated in a ride and explored with us during the year, but especially to those of you who show up every time. It's a true pleasure.

Christmas is just around the corner, and it's therefore only appropriate that the 1 year anniversary of SBH in Copenhagen is Christmas themed!

So put on your Santa hat (I am serious about this, put it on!), and let's explore the Christmas-side of the city. I'll provide some tunes and Christmas treats, yum!

--------

Meet up: 12:30 at Sankt Hans Torv, Nørrebro
Roll out: 13:00

Once again we will end our trip at Wecycle Copenhagen for some well-deserved Glögg and Æbleskiver!
