In celebration of our new Omnium bike, we took it on a tour around the world’s best city for cycling – Copenhagen. Home of the Omnium, city of cyclists.
The Cargo V3 is the greatest cargo bike in the world – it can carry heavy loads, takes you around the city faster than a car (especially in rush hour) and its looks are incomparable! A fast, agile and versatile mode of transportation.
Jonathan Soriano from VSN and photographer Mark Dexter, who’s been riding an Omnium for a long time, took to the streets of Copenhagen to test drive the new bike and visit a bunch of favourite spots; from the Omnium store (obviously) to Etcetera for fuel to the VSN store to say hi.
The limited-edition bike is available now!
Etcetera - New spot in town – a small canteen and wine shop serving food that is often Korean influenced. You cannot miss their Korokke Cheese Bun and Tamago Sando (a Japanese-style egg sandwich). Oh, and their Chive & Spring onion pancake of course!
Casamadre - Simple and honest Italian food made using locally sourced seasonal produce and peppered with Italian specialties. The pasta is incredible, and the atmosphere makes you feel right at home.
Landbohøjskolens Have - A tranquil spot in the middle of the city, this garden has been around since 1858. Influenced by the Romantic gardens of the time, its poetic vibe adds to its serenity. It’s often overlooked, but it’s on the top of our list for hanging out.
Prolog - The best coffee in the world – our honest unbiased opinion :)
Recycles - A shop and workshop, Recycles is the best spot for upgrades and repairs!
ByExpressen - Our Copenhagen-based store has used ByExpressen since its very beginning. And Omnium founder Jimmi “Jumbo” Bargisen still rides for them occasionally!
