UCI Road World Championships 2011


Copenhagen UCI 2011

Copenhagen UCI 2011

When the UCI road racing world championships runs through the heart of Copenhagen in September it will be a regular ’Bike City’ extravaganza. For the city of Copenhagen it’s a giant event that will attract an international audience from near and far and a cycling event that will be watched on TV screens all over the world – in the scenery of Copenhagen.

For the Copenhageners it will mean three full days of blocked traffic in the heart of the city but also a huge public cycling festival that will celebrate the long and steady Copenhagener tradition for cycling anywhere and everywhere.

Copenhagen has the honour of being the first international UCI ’Bike City’ ever and the nomination is no coincidence. The city which is already known for its cycling culture and green profile has worked hard on getting the attractive title which has lead to six big international cycling events have taken place in Copenhagen – culminating with the time travel in the heart of the city.

Driving in the vegetable garden of Copenhagen
But the race is not only set in the beautiful center of the city. The team starts will take place in the beautiful Northern Zealand which is known as the vegetable garden of Copenhagen. You can see the racing program and the two racing courses below.

About 1000 journalists are expected to arrive in Copenhagen to cover the big event when the world’s best riders and their crews meet in Copenhagen. The spectators will come from all over the world as well, which among other things means that the hotels and camping areas of the city are already pretty full.

Pure cycling party
And they will not be bored because the City of Copenhagen is not going to leave the celebrating to the visitors alone. Alongside the World Championship the city has planned a huge public cycling festival which will let the Copenhagener’s love of bikes run free all over the city offering everything from water bike tournaments to children’s biking ramps and ‘pimp your bike’ events.
