Bicycle Safari goes overland to Copenhagen

Normally the Bicycle Safari posts from Lund, in southern Sweden. But in the spirit of a real safari we've been travelling recently. Taking the super massive Öresund Bridge over to Copenhagen (Köpenhamn) we travelled overland and took a look at the local bike scene whilst there.
The similarities to the very nearby Swedish towns was obvious, if more biased towards Danish brands. There were a lot of very interesting modern bikes knocking around, mixing modern design with being very practical city bikes. Very interesting stuff. Take a look at the Avenue bicycle company to get an idea of what I mean.

More interesting to The Safari side of things though was the proliferation of Nottingham built Raleigh bicycles. Not sure what the connection is, but Copenhagen is full of them. Here's a black Tourist De Luxe. Great English style!

From better times of British industry.
