Virtual reality bike tour
Give stake holders in your city a taste of cycling in Copenhagen and put cycling on the local agenda.
With our VR-film, decision makers, urban planners and citizens in your country or city will experience the Danish bicycle culture firsthand on a virtual bike ride around Copenhagen. Our VR-film takes you around the city, showing examples of the worlds’ best bicycle infrastructure and giving you a sense of what it is like to live in a livable city.
The VR-film will be a great activity for car-free days, European Mobility Week, conferences and other events that focus on sustainable urban development where it can motivate decision makers to put cycling on the political agenda and citizens to cycle more.
The Cycling Embassy of Denmark works to promote Danish bicycle knowhow and contribute to the development of cycle cultures around the world. Denmark is a bicycle nation, and especially Copenhagen where 49% of the inhabitants bike to work or study is world-famous for its cycling culture and infrastructure.
With our VR-film, we want to give people the experience of cycling in one of the best and safest bicycle cities in the world. We hope to inspire decision makers, urban planners and others to start improving conditions for cyclists in their home cities.
Even if you don’t have VR glasses, you can still watch the film and get a sense of the 360 degree experience by moving you phone around.
Contact Cycling Embassy of Denmark to get the VR-film
The set-up consists of:
Contact the secretariat of the Cycling Embassy of Denmark to receive the VR-film via e-mail. Download the film directly on the phone or transfer it to the phone.
To show the film, you will need:
- A pair of VR-goggles
- A compatible smartphone
We recommend an iPhone 6 (or newer) with compatible VR-goggles. You can also use a Samsung Galaxy S7 with Samsung’s GEAR-VR. However, the resolution will make the film a bit more unclear with this solution.
You will need an app to show the film. It might be pre-installed in the VR-goggles, otherwise find one in App-store or Google Play.
NB. We do not recommend the free apps since it can interrupt the film with advertisements.
We recommend you include a bicycle in a home trainer at the stand for people to bike on.
Bicycle Home Trainer/Roll
You will need a home trainer to hold the bicycle and enable people to bike on the spot. A simple home trainer without resistance or expensive equipment will do for this set-up.
You are welcome to request our free roll-up design to promote the film and have it printed locally.
