Fred rides a track bike

Copenhagen, Denmark isn’t just a city of of well dressed, beautiful women riding bikes in high heels. Next week, the UCI Track Cycling World Championship will take place there at the Ballerup Super Arena Velodrome.

The Danish crown prince, His Royal Highness Prince Frederik, took a spin around the velodrome on a track bike, looking appropriately Fred-like as he rode with the Danish national track team.

He reportedly had a great time trying the brakeless bikes. Prince Frederik will attend the opening ceremonies at the Track World Championship next week.

Props to Claus for the heads up!
