When I was a kid, my bike was one of my favorite possessions. I used to trick mine out with a giant neon orange flag, a kickin' bell, a speedometer----so that I knew just how lightening fast I really was----and some baseball cards locked in the spokes which made a really cool racket when I rode around.
Now, you may not think that my bike was all that cool----after all, I'm a ton older than you are and "coolness" changes over time---but I'll bet that your bike is unique and important to you too. You might have a certain color that makes your bike stand out or a certain kind of wheel or foot peg that allows you to do interesting tricks. Maybe you have a bike that is themed after something you really enjoy----whether that's racing, riding or wrestling.
Either way, bikes are something that people take great pride in.
Bikes in Denmark are the same way....people love their bikes and try to "personalize" them a bit. But bikes in general tend to share some common traits and characteristics. Check out a Danish bike up close and personal by viewing this video:
So what do you think of Danish bikes? Do Danish bikes make sense for the people of Denmark? Why or why not? Would they make sense for you? Why or why not? If you jumped on a fly Danish ride in your neighborhood today, would your friends be jealous, or would they make fun of you?
Leave us a comment and share your thinking about Danish bikes!
