Your guides on the tour are:
Alice Lempel Søndergaard
Alice has worked in various positions in urban planning and strategy and is commenting on and reviewing new architecture.
She has a degree in philosophy and modern culture and she has a profound interest in how our built environment and city planning are influencing everyday life in the city.
Asser has a background as a building designer on smaller, very diverse projects and as a teacher at the School of Architecture in Aarhus.
Asser is an architect by trade, and since 2020 he is studying construction engineering at the DTU (Technical University of Denmark).
You can read more on his blog: copenhagenarchitecture.dk.
Occasionally, on busy days, we make use of freelance architect guides, who are also professionals from the building and planning industry.
Small group size
We treasure the personal connection and the opportunity to exchange views and experiences along the way. Our maximum group size is 10.
It’s not a fitness session, but all participants should be fairly experienced on a bike and fairly comfortable in traffic. The pace is comfortable and we make plenty of stops.
The tour is suitable from 12 years up, the route mainly follows bike routes, and avoids heavy car traffic.
For someone new on a bike or uncomfortable on the bike lanes, we’ll be happy to offer a custom tour at a slower pace, choosing quieter routes. Please let us know at email@example.com.
Bikes and equipment
On this tour, you can choose between a cool STRiDA design folding bike or a traditional bike.
The STRIDA is a real urban eye candy – and a great ride!
Our Danish Winther high-quality bikes offer a classy, traditional biking experience. We have different sizes, and the seats are adjustable.
Optional helmets are included as well as a bottle of tap water that we bring on the tour.
Can I take my kids?
Yes, kids 12 years+! Cycling is a great family activity and much more kid-friendly than bus and boat tours.
BUT (important!): since we don’t know your kids and their skills on a bike, they will ALWAYS join on the responsibility and supervision of their parents. Helmets are included and recommended for all kids.
