WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT?
On Saturday, May 26th a bunch of crazy people on their way to the sea. Competitive racers, smørrebrød fans, extravagant people, young and old will all come together in an explosive wave that will sweep through Nørrebro! The race combines two iconic pieces of Copenhagen culture: cargo bikes and smørrebrød. We decided to join these two together in a different event, to celebrate the biking culture and the Danish culinary heritage.
Each team races in a cargo bike that they have decorated and prepared beforehand. Their goal is to get to the smørrebrød station as soon as possible, prepare three pieces of smørrebrød that should look pretty and taste delicious. After they complete the task they will try to finish the race, balancing their smørrebrød, trying to keep them intact.
THE STORY BEHIND SMØRREBRØD RACE
We are a diverse group of young people. We decided to create something new and bold, something we think will become a highly anticipated, annual event!
It was last year in summer when we ( Saimon & Philipp) were biking with one cargo bike from Amager to Distortion in Nørrebro. We were already late to the party and biked as fast as we could. We had our crazy party outfits, loud music playing and everyone was just staring at us. We had not had dinner but had a bunch of bread, cucumbers, and mustard in the cargo bike. We could not stop, but we were hungry. So I would like it to be the best idea to start making smørrebrød while biking. At a red light, a girl asked us what the hell we were doing and we roared: "Smørrebrød racing!" And sped off to the fading sun.
