Pedal Power – The Unstoppable Growth of Cycling


Cycling is the most popular form of transport in many European countries, but it’s also one that has been overlooked by a number of people. In Denmark, however, cycling has become a huge part of the culture and can be seen everywhere. This article will explain how this happened and why it’s getting even more popular in future.

Cycling pioneers

Many of the world’s most famous cyclists have been involved in cycling since they were young, including Chris Boardman, who competed at the Olympic Games in 1992 and 1996. He won a gold medal for Team Pursuit at both events.

Jason Kenny and Laura Trott are another pair of British cyclists who have made their mark on history. They have won multiple medals together at both the Olympics and World Championships since 2012; this includes golds for team sprinting as well as individual pursuit competitions.

Bradley Wiggins was also part of Team Pursuit during his time as an Olympian but he has also competed individually too–winning golds for both Time Trial (2012) and Individual Pursuit (2008).

Cycling becomes part of the culture

Cycling is a way of life. It’s not just about getting from point A to point B, but also about connecting with the community, nature and your family. Cycling can help you live longer, healthier and happier lives.

Cycling offers freedom: it allows you to go wherever you want when you want at your own pace. You don’t have to worry about traffic or parking because there are no cars on the road! You can take in all the sights around you while riding through parks or along riverbanks without worrying about being stuck behind slow-moving vehicles clogging up our roads today–and it’s even better if those vehicles are powered by fossil fuels instead of human energy!

The return of the bike

  • The bike is back in fashion.
  • More people than ever are riding their bikes to work, school, and just about everywhere else.
  • Cycling is a great way to get around because it’s good for your health and the environment–and it doesn’t cost a dime!
  • Bikes are also good for the economy: they produce no pollution or greenhouse gases; they don’t take up much space; and they don’t require expensive infrastructure such as roads or parking lots.

More bicycles than people in Denmark

Denmark is the most cycle-friendly country in the world. In fact, it has more bicycles than people–a whopping 2.5 million bikes versus 5.7 million Danes (and counting). This can be attributed to a number of factors:

  • Denmark has always been ahead of its time when it comes to environmental awareness and sustainability initiatives. As early as 1955, Danish lawmakers started implementing measures that made cycling safer for commuters and recreational riders alike, including adding bike lanes to streets and roads throughout their country; establishing traffic laws that protect cyclists from cars; and even creating special “cycling schools” where children learn how to safely ride their bikes on city streets before they’re old enough go out on their own.*

Cycling is going to get even more popular in future.

Cycling is a great way to stay fit and healthy. It’s also good for the environment, as you’re not adding CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. Cycling means you can get around quickly and easily, without having to rely on public transport or cars which cause pollution and congestion (and often take up more space than necessary). And if you cycle with someone else, it gives you an excuse to meet up with them regularly!


There are many reasons to be optimistic about the future of cycling. It is cheap, fun and healthy, which makes it a good choice for people who want to get more active. Cycling also benefits local communities as well as the environment because it reduces pollution and helps reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.
