How to use a bike


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.

So that's why Iceland looks so good. He's continuously sporting, whenever he's in Denmark. Must be a great way to stay fit.

In America, being a cyclist means you have a lot of money to spend on a bike.

Fun Fact: There are more bikes than people in Copenhagen. I've seen entire junkyards filled to the brim with bikes.

We're probably closer to England's view on cycling, or America's. Cars are the most common mode of transportation, a bit less so in large cities where public transit systems are very efficient and comprehensive. Though we also have people who cycle daily mostly out of concern for the environment... and tend to get really snobby towards drivers who "don't share the road" (i.e. are not expecting cyclists of all things in the middle of the road built for cars, and come too close).
In recent years, at least in my city, there's been a LOT of roadwork widening roads and marking out bike lanes just for cyclists. I still hardly ever see one; an actual person on a bicycle, that is.

I personally almost got run over about 10x in Denmark. Insane Danes!! They use us Icelanders for target practice!
Nothing has changed since 1944, has it Denmark. ;)
