Duke of York Square on London’s King’s Road will this Friday host an exhibition of photographs of cyclists in the Danish capital Copenhagen by Mikael Colville-Andersen, the man behind the Copenhagenize and Copenhagen Cycle Chic websites and expert on cycling cultures and infrastructure.
The exhibition, which aims to highlight how the city’s cycle culture evolved and the lessons that others can draw from it, is jointly hosted by the Danish Embassy, located on nearby Sloane Street, and the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea’s Bikeminded project, which is funded by the European Union.
The outdoor exhibition, accompanied by a display of bikes from Danish brands including Velorbis, Nihola and Avenue, will be open from 11am to 4pm.
If you can’t make it, you can view Colville-Andersen’s pictures in his recent Cycle Chic book, published in the UK by Thames & Hudson.
Colville-Andersen will be speaking tomorrow evening about Danish cycling culture at Chelsea Old Town Hall – the event, unfortunately, is now sold out – and will also be addressing the All Party Parliamentary Cycling Group at the Houses of Parliament earlier in the day.
Born in Scotland, Simon moved to London aged seven and now lives in the Oxfordshire Cotswolds with his miniature schnauzer, Elodie. He fell in love with cycling one Saturday morning in 1994 while living in Italy when Milan-San Remo went past his front door. A daily cycle commuter in London back before riding to work started to boom, he's been news editor at road.cc since 2009. Handily for work, he speaks French and Italian. He doesn't get to ride his Colnago as often as he'd like, and freely admits he's much more adept at cooking than fettling with bikes.
