Cycling in Denmark

Overnatning i det fri

“Overnatning i det fri” is a guide book in Danish about nearly free campsites in Denmark. Denmark don’t have the “Allemannsretten”, freedom to roam, like other Scandinavian countries. Since the normal campsites have become rather expensive and more like a family holiday theme park. Which off course has it place, but if you just want a place to pitch your tent and access to the basic such as water. Then

More wind, single track offroading, history, visit to Germany, two utterly brilliant campsites and even a song from Peli. 03/06/2011: As normal my folks’ B&B trumped any other. We left with full stomachs following a lovely breakfast on the terrace. With a light lunch packed we headed toward the harbour. Our first destination that day was Als, the 11th island on our tour of Denmark. Again I had looked wrongly

Sandwich, sun, rolling hills, good company but missing two, the wind that became mountains and mum’s yummy home made ice cream 31/05/2011: Gus arrived on the dot of nine thirty and we had a good old natter before we had to part company with the Wowbaggers, with a tear in our eye. Fem cyklister became tre. We zigzagged our way south out of Copenhagen towards Køge where we found a

Basic toilet, HC Anderson birthplace and the train over the bridge to Sjælland and a trip to the hospital. 28/05/2011: We woke up and found that the owners had left early and we still had the pressing problem of where and how to do our “bio break” as the Americans call it. With a bucket and some straw we managed to use the stables as an impromptu toilet block, and

Lurgy, seasickness, the hunt for a hotdog and our first stay “i det fri” in Denmark and our first taste of the wind 25/06/2011: The last two weeks I’ve been playing with a fluey-buggy thing that wouldn’t really kick in properly. Which, of course, meant that two nights before our departure to Denmark and the start of our 11 day-long cycle tour, I was sick as a very sick thing.

Living in a box

Our last day of our holiday started nice and slow, with a good breakfast and tea and some basic chilling out. We went over to the local bike shop, Webike, to pick up some empty bike boxes to pack our bikes in. Last minute snack before we had go to the airport. Dead easy on the Metro in CPH only 25min door to door. Georg Jensen’s bling bike on display

A swinging rest ride

We had a bit of a lie in today, I was more in the mood to just be lazy. But Peli’s nagging got me up and after breakfast we headed out. The original idea was to cycle to Roskilde along the national cycle route 4. With the help of Bam the night before I had a general idea where that route were, find number 9 and it will take you


For 10 years or so I have been chatting and emailing with Mr. Owl. And every time there had been a change to meet up, something had come up and we didn’t make it. But this time we finally made it and Mr. Owl made his way down to Copenhagen for a day touristing about. The city hall in CPH. Lucky the day was a Danish holiday and the weather

Million Dollars Ride

We managed to talk Bam and his son Kev, into joining us for a ride. Of course we picked the hottest day of the year so far, 25c, to do the ride in. We decided to head up the coast, past many of the wonderful beaches in CPH and past where people with money to spare live. Just pumping some more air into the MTB tyres on the bike Kev
