How does he Steer??
Bike Routes. (These bike routes are for real! -- Not just streets or highways "designated" as "bike routes", but highways with actual bike lanes, which are often separate from, and running along both sides of, the roadway.)
"The Walking Street" in Odense. Danish flags were flying for a special occasion-- the queen's birthday.
Trail along Odense canal
Dock on canal. (The free bike ferry operates weekdays only.)
At Odense harbor
Stopping at a neighbor's house
Nice road shoulders. (When these relatives visited us last summer, a comment was made about the "very bad condition" of the roads in our area, which came as a surprise to me. The fact that there are fewer cars, and smaller, slower trucks over there may partly explain the good condition of the infrastructure. The extreme taxes on automobiles and gasoline may also be a factor.)
A family on wheels. (Danish families have more wheels, but fewer SUVs. In general, only little kids wear helmets when riding bikes. Women, in contrast, wear high-heeled boots. Every bike has fenders.)
LITTLE stoplight, just for the bicyclists! I didn't get a picture, but there are also quite a few trail direction markers along the bike routes. Notice the high heels, again.
A stop at the bank (to store Mia's new wealth)
Buses actually had plenty of riders!
In the boonies, a bridge for pedestrians and bicyclists. The yellow field is a crop of rapeseed.
A chance encounter. We are overtaken by Steen's younger brother Jan, who was on his way home from work.
Windmill -- source of 20% of Danish electric power
A few American-built cars exist in Denmark -- and they are classics!
Farewell to a magical kingdom -- and to 10 more Danish windmills. P.S.- For another nice Odense biking album, go to http://picasaweb.google.com/bevanw1/CycleTouringInDenmark
