Cycling with children

If your children can already ride a bike, you can easily plan a holiday with the whole family on bikes. Much of Denmark’s extensive cycle route network takes roads with little traffic or trails in forest and open countryside. Handy online tools such as the Danish Cycling Federation’s route planner can help you plan a trip that takes in the most gentle terrain and quietest roads.

Remember to plan in plenty of rest stops along the way and keep your little pedallers motivated with visits to the many amusement parks, zoos and other attractions along Denmark’s cycling routes.

Using a bike trailer

If your kids can’t yet ride a bike, that’s no problem. Many bike rental shops can rent you safe and secure bike trailers, so you can pedal for your children and take them along with you. Make sure you test the trailer before you take it, to see that it is light and stable. You can also get bike trailers that fold together, to be taken on the train.
