Bedsteforældre på cykeler ... Grandparents on bikes

Min mening: Ældre mennesker i Danmark er MERE AKTIV END unge generationer.
HVER dag, ser jeg "bedsteforældre" (mænd og kvinder som er 70+ år gammel) cykler omkring Herning. Det er forbløffende at se! Mest begyndte deres "cykler måde af liv" da de var små børn, så det er en normalt ting at gør (selv om mange ejer en bil). Jeg tror den ældre befolkning i Danmark skal leve meget længe end ældre befolkninger i andre lande. Mit mål: At blive dygtig at "springer op" på min cykel lige så godt dem!

My opinion: Older people in Denmark are MORE ACTIVE THAN younger generations.
EVERY day, I see "grandparents! (men and women who are 70+ years old) riding their bikes around Herning. It is amazing to see! Most began their "cycling way of life" when they were little children, so it is a normal thing to do (although many own a car). I believe the older population in Denmark will live much longer than older populations in other countries. My goal: To be able to "jump up" onto my bike just as good as them!


Billeder jeg tog denne uge...lige forbløffende....

Maybe thats why people are so happy- good health and vitality among the elderly.

Hi Kelli, good to hear from you on our blog! Wow, I'm really impressed with your Danish after you've only been here 4 months!! Actually we live about 1 hour from Herning (towards Aarhus), we just go there a lot because my sister lives there. My husband is from Wisconsin and has been here 5 years now. Stop by any time... :-) We know quite a few American people in case you get a little homesick...

I agree! Over here in Sweden you see the older generation hiking, walking with poles, cycling - and they all look so much younger too!

WOW! Love the first little lady with her mini heels riding her bike. I thought it was crazy when the younger folks rode with their heels on but that woman is extra brave!

Thanks for the share. Guess I will pull out my mountain bike now...not! LOL! : )

Miss ya!

My father-in-law (not 70) bikes a lot around the city. He loves it.
