Danish Cycling Pioneers: Carl Georg Rasmussen

At long last, here is the first film in the series of Danish Cycling Pioneers, complete with subtitles. A portrait of Carl Georg Rasmussen, inventor of the Leitra - the first velomobile of the modern age.

At the opening of the Bicycle Innovation Lab last month, Carl Georg was honoured for his contribution to Danish cycling culture.

Here are some of the photos from the opening day:

We were overwhelmed by the response and the gifts/greetings from the City of Copenhagen's mayor in charge of traffic and enivironment, Danish State Railways, Danish Eco-Council, Copenhagen's Bicycle Office, you name it. Basically, all the important players on the bicycle culture front supported us at the opening.

We're humbled and thrilled.
