BACKGROUND & ORGANIZATION:
A number of companies and volunteers are behind the organisation of the Svajerløb. It is a not-for-profit event and for all involved it is really a ‘con amore’ affair, fuelled by their passion for Copenhagen’s bicycle culture and cargo bikes. The idea to revive the historical Svajerløb started in 2009 when Erik Heinze (Firmacyklen.dk) and Hans Bullitt Fogh (Larry vs Harry) held the first modern version of the classic race. Together with Mikael Colville-Andersen (Copenhagenize.com) and Søren Houen Schmidt (Rekommanderet), they form the nucleus of the team behind the Svajerløb.
Svajerløb 2013 is also supported by Carlsberg City, The City of Copenhagen, Tombola CPH, the Danish cargobike team ‘Team Bullitt Hangover Copenhagen’, Bicycle Innovation Lab and an army of passionate volunteers.
We hope to see as many participants and spectactors as possible to create a memorable day.
