Cycling has for long benefited human beings with their health, fitness and as a transportation mode. It has helped maintain a environmentally friendly society.
Denmark is usually crowned as world best country for cycling with over 12,000km of cycle routes, along with dedicated cycling lanes, cycle bridges and Green Wave system which prioritise cyclists at junctions.
This Cycle march around Denmark starts on August 14 from Bispebjerg Cemetery Copenhagen at 9:30 am. The reason why this cycle march is going to start from Bispebjerg Cemetery is that here lies the body of young Danish cyclist Andreas Byskov Sarbo who died during a cycling race in Odder Denmark on 1st June 2019.
The cycling march first stop will be Ringsted. It will then cycle to Korsør. Surprisingly the Storebæltsbroen does not have the cycle lane so therefore, train will be used to cross the bridge and land in Nyborg city in Fyn. Next stop will be Odense where there will be night stay. On 15 August the cycle march will attend attend a demonstration against racism and discrimination in Odense. Around 14:00 on 15th August, march will cycle towards Fredericia. After which next stop will be Vejle where there will be night stay.
