Danish biking etiquette - the guide

Want to be like the Danes? Adhere to the unspoken biking rules

Those new to bike-mad Copenhagen might find themselves in trouble if they don’t know the rules of the road – or rather, the bike lane.

One wrong turn without a hand signal can put virginal cyclists in a world of pain. Not heeding the all-powerful bike bell could result in a trip to the emergency room. Avoid violations of the unwritten Danish bike ethics code by reading our bicycle etiquette guide.
