Before the tour
Kids & Bikes
How old/ tall have the kids to be to for the cargo bike?
Kids must be able to sit by themselves without support (around 12 months) and can be in the bike up 10-12 years or 1,50 m/ 5 feet. A cargo bike can load 100 kg (without driver). One adult rides the cargo family bike and the other(s) will be equipped with normal bikes.
We do have older kids, can they join?
Due to safety reasons, we do not allow kids under the age of 12 to ride on their own individual bikes. Kids as well as adults must be at least 1,50 m/ 5,1 feet high for being able to ride our individual bikes. Please contact us, when you are in doubt.
What about infants that can’t sit by themselves yet?
It is possible to install a baby car seat in the floor of the bike with a belt. If you are interested in going on a tour with your toddler, please contact us.
Bikes & Helmets
How much can the bike load?
The bike can load up to 100 kg/ 220 pounds excluding the drivers weight, so that even adults could be transported inside it.
How will the kids be sitting?
There is a bench installed with car safety belts in the wooden box in front of you.
Are helmets obligatory in Denmark?
Helmets are not obligatory by law, but we recommend our guests to wear them, not because we think you are not good at cycling, but more because of the other traffic participants in the streets.
What do the helmets cost?
Helmet rent is included in the price. The inside cushions are washed regularly.
What kind of bikes are we riding on in what constellation?
A family of three or four will be riding like this with us: 1 adult & up to 2 kids on the cargo bike from Christianiabikes. 1 adult and the guide on normal 28’’ women city bikes with 3 gears or a smaller foldable bike. You can change the bikes during the tour, so that every adult can try the cargo bike feeling like a local.
Where does the tour start/ end?
Our tour starts at the Church of Our Saviour in Christianshavn and ends close a public transport hub in the city center.
Can we start the tour at other places?
Depending on where your accommodation is situated, we can offer other starting points. We do cooperate with Donkey Republic, who are providing us with normal bikes for those not chauffeuring the kids on the cargo bike.
Can you store our luggage?
Bag packs or even kid carriers and handbags can be transported in the cargo bike. We do not have the possibility to store bigger luggage. But our friends from Luggagehero do at many places in the city. Please let us know, if you want to book luggage storage and a tour departing/ ending at one of the spots.
Can grandma/ grandpa/ auntie/ uncle join us?
Of course! We just provide them with extra normal bikes. (You can add them during the booking process).
How hard is the tour?
When you are in normal physical shape, you can easily manage the tour. There are no steep hills, only one little steeper bridge, which, until now, our guests managed, even with 80 kg in the cargo bike. There might be a little bit headwind occasionally.
Are food/ drinks included in the tour?
No. We think that taste is something real personal but food is a must. We stop at a suitable restaurant, café or streetfood market where we have some food together.
What if we cannot manage to ride the cargo bike?
No worries. You will get an introduction. But we recommend that it is not longer than 5 years ago you last time have ridden a bike. But if someone is not feeling safe, your partner can try and you can go on a normal bike. If both of you feel insecure, the guide can chauffeur the kids as well. But so far anybody managed after getting used to it.
Will there be other guests/ families on the tour?
No, normally not. We like to make our tours a great experience for each single families, focusing totally on their needs. However, if we are in the situation, where we do not have any guides available and we think that two families could go together, we would always ask the two families, if they would mind if another family is joining the tour. Both would be offered a discount.
