As a means of transportation, bicycles play an important role in Denmark.

Bicycle paths and routes

In general there are good conditions for cyclists in Denmark, and the drivers are used to paying attention to cyclists. There are bicycle paths along many heavily trafficked roads, and bicycle routes that take you through some of the best countryside in East Jutland. In some places, city bikes can be used free of charge, although you need a DKK 20 coin to unlock the bike.

Excellent conditions

In Denmark, there is considerable focus on ensuring excellent conditions for cyclists as cycling is good for all of us. In addition to exercise and fresh air, cycling also benefits the environment as it reduces the number of cars on the roads.
