Cycling Copenhagen with Children, Canines & Couples as Cargo

I was sitting in my hotel room after two days of shooting a few videos in Copenhagen and realized I had unconsciously become more fixated on capturing more on people riding with their children (and pets!) than in past trips. It could have something to do with the fact that I have a young son now.
Almost a joke I tweeted to Streetfilms fans asking if I put together a montage of kids and dogs being ferried about in Copenhagen would they watch it. I got over two dozen likes and plenty more replies in a very short time. So while at the airport waiting for my flight to Oslo and also using the flight time and bus ride to hotel, I put stitched this lovely bike poem together.
I hope you like it. Especially because I almost never use slow-mo. Why? I see people that lean on it all the time as a style. For me, I think it's best to use it sparingly. I've used slow-motion maybe twice in 700 Streetfilms. But this time it felt so right. Enjoy.
