Copenhagen is known for its biker-friendly atmosphere. Thousands hit the streets daily, and with the Cykelbarometer, Copenhagen will not only know the exact number of riders in certain areas, but will also reward them with a Biomega bike for their green efforts.

The Cykelbarometer is set up in a central location in Copenhagen. It monitors the number of overall riders as well as riders per day. When the overall number reaches 500,000, that rider wins a free bike from Biomega. The Cykelbarometer unit also comes equipped with an air pump for riders who need a lift. No wonder Copenhagen was named the best city to be a cyclist in!
