The bicycle highway

Yesterday was the grand opening of the bicycle highway on Nørrebrogade. On any given day there are more people celebrating the city's widest bike lanes than at this event, it was not exactly drawing a crowd... but despite the sparse attendance and the creepy cold it was a crazy beautiful day, with a heavy hit of "hygge".

Opening day

Copenhagen bicycle highway

Balloons, confetti and color... a true blues-buster.

Bench cushions

Cushioned seats! Just for the occasion. And a small tent for the performing DJ. I wish I could have made a soundbite for you (I want to learn how to make/add homemade soundbites, do any of you have good tips for that? Help will be greatly appreciated).

Public bench cushions

Copenhagen's widest bikelanes

Queen Louises Bridge with a minimum of traffic. Weekends are blissfully quiet.


DJ Mike Sheridan, making jaws drop on the electronic music scene from the ripe age of fourteen. Do you see what I see? Look closely... as always the real party is backstage:

Backstage birds

Hello birds!

Hahaha, I love Copenhagen madly, did I ever tell you that?

  1. Jeg elsker elsker elsker nr. 2 billede med konfetti i luften, Sandra! Det er SÅ flot - fantastisk øjeblik du har fanget dér.

    Jeg tænkte på dig forleden da jeg gik på Ahlefeldtsgade og der var grønt fint glimmer på fortovet. Tog et billede og prøvede virkelig at fange magien i det, men uden held. Tænkte at du nok ville have haft mere held med det.

  2. Åh, hvor hyggeligt, det er også det jeg er aller gladest for selv. Sad sammenkrøbet og ventede på den helt rigtige kombination af vind og ingen mennesker i vejen for ballon porten... da det endelig lykkedes kunne jeg mærke det helt ind i knoglerne, haha.

    Glimmer er så uhyggeligt svært at fange, men jeg elsker alligevel at prøve. :-)

  4. He did good, nice and mellow. With the tunes in the cold with the winter light, the balloons and the confetti blowing in the wind, it was a little bit magical. Copenhagen at its best.

  5. Mmmm, I like confetti. And bicycles. And DJs. The only thing they needed was some mulled wine and aebleskiver or something else tasty :)

  6. Yeah, they skipped the edibles, you are right. So it wasn't perfect after all. But it came damn near close. :-)
