On Wooing Women with a Bicycle

New Zealander Emily McLean, a columnist for The Copenhagen Post, writes about the difficulty of “Dating the Danes.” In this column McLean explains “The Danish Instrument of Love.” “I’ve come to notice during my time here that the humble bike is much more to a Danish man than just his means of transport. It’s his right-hand man when attempting to court women. The bike serves many functions. Most notably, it’s an intimate form of transport when shared. Secondly, bikes are a perfect vehicle for showing off your manliness. Danish men love nothing more than displaying their limited range (after all, many of them don’t have cars to fix) of handyman skills on the bike.”
