Raleigh Bicycling in Copenhagen
Seeing this Raleigh bicycle being ridden in Copenhagen reminded me of one I had when I was young. It was the coolest thing.
The Raleigh Bicycle Company was originally founded in Nottingham, UK, back in 1887. Today, it’s owned by Dutch bicycle manufacturer, Accell Group NV, one of the largest producers of bicycles and parts in the world.
This is a great photograph of a late-model version, and in a nice color – black!

Cycling in Chilly Copenhagen.
There’s something ‘cool’ about riding a bicycle on an autumn day, listening to your favorite music, and being in Copenhagen.

Snowy Spring weather in Copenhagen. 
And those Apple headphones as ear muffs.

More Copenhageners are taking advantage of boarding their bicycles on trains. 
It’s free!
And there are now dedicated cycle cars with flexible parking spaces. No more tight squeezes with the regular commuters.

Jopo bicycles are a Scandinavian icon. Engineered in Finland about 50 years ago, these bikes were designed for anyone to use, “no matter what age, size, sex or financial status.”
In recent times, jopoism moved to it’s 3rd generation, 3-geared, jopo3 model.
As part of an interactive campaign, people in Copenhagen were encouraged to seek out hidden jopo bikes by finding clues and combinations to the bicycles’ locks on jopo’s facebook page. 
Kind of like hide ‘n seek, but the finders get to keep the jopo bicycles for free! 
With summer just round the corner, there will be a few happy jopo’ers in Copenhagen.

With cycling becoming more popular in Copenhagen, there’s growing demand for widening bicycle lanes to accommodate three bikes at a time (currently the lanes allow for two).

Yesterday in Vimmelskaftet, Copenhagen, a cyclist looks cool;  braving the eastern cold front that has enveloped Denmark.

The Danish are cool. Why? Because they love their bicycles; riding them even in the middle of winter. They commute to and from work and go to parties on their bikes, no matter what the weather. 
And they do it in style. Just like these two women in Søtorvet, Copenhagen.
