The Danish capital has run the Bycyklen Kobenhavn non-profit bike-loan scheme since 1995, allowing visitors to can borrow a bike for as long as they like (except after nightfall — they have no lights). Bikes are the best way to see the city — nearly half of the city’s inhabitants use their bikes daily, and there are plenty of bike lanes.
The best place for bike-rental (including family bikes with front trailers) in Copenhagen is CPH (www.cph-bike-rental.dk), where profits go to sending used bicycles to African villages to be converted into ambulance-bikes, water-carrying bikes and bikes to get kids to school. The firm also runs bike tours.
