- Holiday 2014 – Denmark on a bike – anyone any experience/help?
Mrs M and I have arbitrarily (sort of) decided that it’s going to be Denmark this year. Get the ferry over, bikes (prob road/CX) on the back of the car, find a holiday let of some sort, ride around (a lot), day trips to Copenhagen and… we’ll find somewhere else to visit I’m sure…
Anyone done anything similar? Any tips? Advice? TIA as always 🙂Posted 5 years ago
why take the car? park up, ride to ferry, ride off at the other side. We’ve done it in Belgium not denmark but can be great
We did this – and got Commodore Class on the way back 🙂 2 X sweaty cyclists turning up lifted an eyebrow or two!
We did Esjberg to Rosklilde (to the festival :)) then up to Aarhus and down the coast.
– the lake district around Silkeborg – mildly hilly and beuatiful
– Aarhus – a cracking town, full of character
We have the cycle route maps still (I think) if you’d like them

I think we’d still want the option of the car. While I’d happily cycle every day, Mrs M not always so keen to do so. Plus I don’t think my CX takes panniers so we’d be limited.
Sounds like there’s a fair bit of expertise amongst you guys – where would you suggest as a “base” assuming we did take the car and did rides out from that base?Posted 5 years agoDrJMember
TM – just for information, that pastry is called a “baker’s bad eye”. Still tastes great, though 🙂
One special day out from Copenhagen is to take the bikes on a ferry that goes to the isalnd of Hven (or Ven) which is strictly speaking Swedish. It is really a glimpse of some old fashioned Scandi paradise with old villages, fantastic beaches, rocky shore etc. See http://www.visithven.dk/UK/index.html On a nice day it’s wonderful.
Or …. thinking further … take bikes to Helsingor and ride to Hornbaek. I haven’t done it but I suspect there are nice wooded trails. Hornbaek is a seaside town like you imagine your childhood was (but which it wasn’t). Fishing boats, big beaches, ice cream.Posted 5 years ago

We’re planning on doing something similar, ferry from Harwich to HvH, drive through NL, Germany on to Denmark then Sweden before doing the same back. We’re thinking of doing it over 3 weeks with stops on the way. No idea where we’ll stop etc…. but will look at any info here.Posted 5 years agoMikkelMember
twiglet, i grew up some 20 miles from that place, and it always made me giggle too.
Very nice around there, and not far from the nice sandy beaches (where they have now finally cleared the old minefield)and they have even made some nice mountainbike trails there too now.Posted 5 years ago
