I cycle because it’s integral to the culture in Denmark (I’m from Copenhagen), so it seems strange not to cycle whenever you get the chance. You get some free exercise and usually it’s quicker than cars, especially in the morning with all the traffic. I also really like that you don’t pollute as much and it’s a nicer way to travel. You feel freedom on the bike riding down the road or up a hill. All those things combined make it a perfect way for me to commute.
