Copenhagen is the city for cycling! When bicycling became popular in the late 1800s and early 1900s, it provided an opportunity for tenement residents to get out of the housing projects and experience some freedom. It became a common form of commuting to work, and was utilized heavily until the 1950s. After a decline in the 50s and 60s, Danes pedaled their way back to bicycling prominence in the 1970s and continue to value bicycling today. The use of bicycles in Copenhagen is something that modern Danes take pride in and love to share with visitors. So, if you happen to visit Copenhagen, don’t forget to pack your helmet! www.denmark.dk #tivolituesday
