Copenhagen/Istanbul

The City of Copenhagen owns 2200 specially designed city bikes. The bikes are placed in racks all over the city, and can be picked up by anyone in return for a one-coin deposit and used for sightseeing or other purposes. Itís a wonderful service, but there is a drawback: Each bike weighs 25 kilos, and the tires are made of solid rubber.

In the summer 2005 I decided to cycle the 3500 kilometers from Copenhagen to Istanbul in Turkey on such a bike. My mission was to find the goodness in people on my way through Europe.
