Up for a really long day out cycling? Pedal your way from Hamburg to Copenhagen, more than 200 miles, on May 26, during the first edition of an outing put on by the Danish organization Cycling Culture A/S.

Riders will set off from Hamburg at 5 a.m., making their way to Puttgarden, from where they will board a Scanlines ferry to transport them to the Danish town of Rødby. From there, it’s another hundred miles to the finish line in Kongens Lyngby, a suburb of Copenhagen. Riders must be in good physical shape, accustomed to distance riding, and at least 15 years old. A service vehicle will help when bikes or riders run into trouble.

The 695 Danish krone ($121) cost of participation includes registration, start number, catering during the race, dinner on the ferry ride, sausages and beer at the finish, and a diploma certifying participation.

Shorter routes through Germany or Denmark only are also available. Not yet fit for such a challenge? A similar event takes place Aug. 25 between Berlin and Copenhagen. Learn more and sign up at
