Bornholm is primarily an island of cyclists. Not only because there are more bicycles here than cars, but also because of the respect of residents and road users for two-wheelers. On almost every road you can see dark green boards with the inscription cycelvej (bicycle path), with names and distances. Sometimes you get the impression that on Bornholm bicycles won with motor vehicles, in the end 1/3 of bicycle routes were built in place of liquidated tracks of the Bornholm’s railway.
