Feature: Winter in Copenhagen
Clearing cycle tracks of snow is the highest priority for the City of Copenhagen.
What keeps 80 percent of Copenhagen’s cycling citizens riding through the winter?
While the Danish capital’s relatively light annual snowfall and average temperatures hovering around the freezing point may be mild compared to the American Midwest or the Canadian Prairies, these conditions would be more than enough to deter many North Americans from even considering a ride.
Clearing snowfall from the city’s cycle tracks is a priority – with most routes cleared before other city streets – but it is the existence of a convenient, accessible, and connected network in the first place that makes cycling an attractive option to Copenhageners, no matter what the weather may be.
