Beautiful weather for riding again today. 15 degrees and sunny, so we were in high spirits as we packed up to leave Göteburg. We'll definitely be back some time as well as we liked it a lot.
The main road made its way down the coast and we got some great views over the sea. We stopped for a quick look in a national park on the coast and walked up a sand dune (leaving our bikes in the car park this time!) to get an even better perspective and figured it was a good time for lunch at the nearby cafe.
Not long after that (and after passing through a small shower) we arrived at the border between Sweden and Denmark, separated by the Øresund Straight. There's now a bridge linking Malmo to Copenhagen and it's very impressive. We rode along it as a ferry passed underneath us and 6 miles after it started we plunged underground for 4 miles in a tunnel.
We popped up on the outskirts of the city and headed in. The traffic was slightly heavier here, but like most countries we've been in recently the towns and cities are much less car-centric than British ones and there were big, segregated joined-up cycle routes which were being used well.
We found a hotel in the centre of town easily and headed to the Tivoli theme park just around the corner. A big, colourful and well kept park right in the middle of the city that has been around for over 100 years. We had a lot of fun on the rollercoasters and got a great view from the top of a massively high spinning swing ride. We've found the Danes to be very friendly as well.
Local tucker tonight (wagamamas!) and back for bed.
205 miles today.
