A Slow Bicycle Race - Copenhagenize vs Amsterdamize

Slow Bicycle Race - Copenhagenize vs Amsterdamize from Colville Andersen on Vimeo.

My mate Marc, from Amsterdamize.com, visited Copenhagen late last year and apart from riding about and seeing the city, I challenged him to the World's First Copenhagen Invitational Slow Bicycle Race at the Slowodrome on the Harbour.

We have a good laugh.

Slow Bicycle races are nothing new. They've been around since the bicycle was invented and featured prominently at country fairs around Denmark and Europe. Europe includes Britain, by the way.

Anyway, 1-0 to CPH. Here's Marc's post about the same legendary event.

And remember, there's still room for more in the Slow Bicycle Movement Facebook group.
