Meet your guide in central Copenhagen on your own bike or, if you need to hire a bike (additional cost), arrive in advance to organize the rental.
Don an optional cycle helmet, and set off behind your guide. Your tour largely follows cycle paths, so you’ll be mostly away from traffic, and covers around 12 to 15 miles (20-25 kilometers).
Pass the waterfront Copenhagen Mall (Fisketorvet) before crossing a bridge to the Islands Brygge area. Then, trace picturesque waterside paths into the quaint Nokken allotment district. Situated along the water, this charming enclave is composed of allotment gardens and quirky, hand-built huts, and houses. Savor the relaxed atmosphere and learn about Nokken’s roots as a fishing community.
Break for coffee (own expense) at the Sønderbro Haveforening allotment area, and enjoy a fun ride on Denmark’s only Cuban bicycle—a 3-wheeler with a passenger seat.
Resuming your tour, ride by Sluseholmen, one of Copenhagen’s upscale residential neighborhoods. Admire the innovative canalside townhouses and continue around the flower-filled Frem and Musikbyen allotment quarters into more tucked-away areas—some unknown to many Copenhageners.
After a few hours of exploring, arrive back at the start point, where your tour ends.
