Bike City label awarded to Copenhagen

UCI names World's first "Bike City" in Denmark

"Internationally renowned cities wanting to get involved in cycling"

Despite the demise after just one running of the Danish women's World Cup race, Denmark's rise as a power in the world of cycling continues.

The World Cup team time trial - the Golden Hour which took place in 2006 was a great event, but not sustainable (and in Aarhus, not Copenhagen). 

Denmark, Copenhagen specifically, will host other world-class events over the next few years, such as the UCI BMX Supercross World Cup races 2008 & 2009, UCI Track Cycling World Cup Classics races 2007-2008 & 2008-2009. 

In addition, World Championship events will be hosted by Copenhagen in the near future, namely the 2010 UCI Track Cycling World Championships and the 2011 UCI Road World Championships.

Bike City is a label used by the UCI to define famous cities "wanting to get involved in cycling (from competition to sport for all), as an environmentally-friendly leisure sport and a gentle means of transport". (source: UCI website). Organisation of major championships is a factor in the award, as are plans to build develop cycling via networks of cycle tracks and associated facilities.
