Stylish Ways to Carry Booze on Your Bike

Copenhagen is the city of bicycling, but sometimes you run into problems with transporting certain things on your bicycle. Of course we ladies have our baskets, but most of the guys won’t be caught dead on a bicycle with a basket. Summer in Copenhagen means enjoying the lovely weather outside at the park or beach, but just how do you transport your 6 pack or bottle of wine on your bicycle?

Walnut Architecture & Design Studio has the perfect solution: beautiful, functional hand tooled leather accessories so you can carry booze on your bike. Just remember, don’t bike and booze!

Vintage Volvo

Recently I’ve spotted several vintage and antique cars around Copenhagen. Is it because Denmark is one of the most expensive places in the world to own a car? Possibly. Or is it because some people just love the look and feel of old cars? Let’s face it, they don’t make ’em like they used to.

While out for an evening walk I passed by this lovely Volvo, I’m not sure what the year or model, but it just looked so classy on the street next to all the new cars.

Fælledparken Skatepark

Fælledparken, located in the Østerbro neighborhood of Copenhagen, is undergoing a major renovation thanks to a 154 million kroner ($ 27,000,000.00) donation from the AP Møller Foundation. Fælledparken is one of the larger parks in Copenhagen and is known for its wide open space, perfect for playing soccer, frisbee, grilling, etc.

One of my favorite features of the renovation is the new skatepark, designed by Nordarch. The skatepark is one of the largest in Northern Europe and fits beautifully into the landscape. Skateboarders have a difficult time finding space to practice, and the city of Copenhagen has created a top-notch skatepark for them to enjoy.

Constructed in concrete with a total of 55,000 square feet/ 4,600 square meters, the skatepark contains street areas, bowl areas, a vert ramp and a large seating/hang out area for spectators and visitors. Skateboarders seem to enjoy the park, every time I pass buy it’s buzzing with activity.

To see concept, construction, and completion photos visit the Nordarch website.
