Bike touring around Denmark

15 June 2010

My wife and I would like to do about a week's bike tour (lightly loaded) in Denmark after the conference. We'd like to rent a bike and stay either at hostels or private homes (through Drupal site

* Where do you recommend that we spend a week bike touring that time of year?
* Suggestions about how to rent bikes (or maybe a tandem)
* Any other suggestions about bike touring

Thanks for any and all help!

2) Take a look at this page:

A good idea is probably to stay on Sealand... so you can make it back to Copenhagen in time for your flight :)

I can recommend the books from Danish Cycling Association. They are available in english.
If you need any help getting your fingers on these let us know.

About renting a bike, I have sent a message to a client who can probably point me in the right direction about the best place. I will do a follow up post

Oh my gosh! I'm hearing about this (bike holidays) for the first time. How were able to bike from Arctic to Argentina? I don't even have patience to travel so long in a car. I appreciate you. This is amazing!
