How to use a Bicycle


When I moved to England I noticed a lot of differences from Denmark. When I moved back to Denmark I noticed even more. One being that "cyclist" means different things.

In Denmark a cyclist just means a person on a bike (and most Danes are cyclists), but in England it's mostly used about people who are really really REALLY into bikes.

Why is it so strange? It's like the difference between being a youtuber and making youtube videos. You do it seriously and you're rewarded for it or you just ride a bike.

I don't know if I like this. I think England and Iceland should have spoken what they said, instead of showing it with speech bubbles.

The running animation was a little unattractive but this was still funny :P

"What being a cyclist means in the USA!"
(shows footage of America squashed under the tracks of a car, his bike all mangled, stars flying round his head)
You're Welcome (bows) :D

I'm thinking of moving from America to Denmark. Good to know that a lot of people bike there. My only real issue is learning Danish
