In the early years after the war, the bicycle provided cheap, easy and efficient transport.
In the 50’s and 60’s the bicycle was slowly but surely replaced by cars, but in a few cities, such as Copenhagen, the bicycle managed to pick up again in the late 70’s and early 80’s and today continues to be the most important means of transport.
When we grow older our legs and our eyes may prevent us from cycling on our own.
And at some point, usually in our early 70’s, we stop cycling altogether.
This is Thorkild, a 97 year-old gentleman and nursing home resident.
