We only occasionally feature articles about other cities here at Spacing Montreal, so I thought readers might enjoy a few of these classic photos of cyclists in Copenhagen. They are taken by a family member while visiting back in the 1970s. Above is Norreport station, which even before Copenhagen began creating its impressive bike infrastructure, was busy with bicycles. Today, there are thousands more parked there. For those interested in what the Danish capital has done recently for cycling, Spacing publisher’s Matt Blackett recently posted an article on their bike lanes and other nifty innovations after a recent visit.
I can’t tell if this woman has a smaller child on her front rack, too, or if it’s some other cargo. For those who enjoy photos of people riding bicycles without sacrificing their sense of fashion, check out Copenhagen Cycle Chic.
I just think this photo is too charming not to be included.
