  • Traffic rules for bikes

    Changing of direction to right or left, must be indicated by extending the corresponding arm.

    Stopping must be indicated by lifting the arm, so bikers behind you can see and stop or overtake you.

    It is your obligation to stop at bus stops where people will cross the bike lane to enter and exit busses.

    Lights on your bike are always compulsory when it is dark.

    Don’t bike in pedestrian streets, zebra crossings and sidewalks.

    Keep as close to the right side as possible. This will give faster bikers the possibility to overtake you if necessary.

  • Rent a bike

    You can rent a second-hand bike or buy a used bike cheap in Copenhagen. It is up to you how much you want to pay.

    There are several bike shops in greater Copenhagen. Ask Danish students for advice on the best places and consider whether you should buy a new or second hand bike.
