Malmö is known for a variety of things. Like falafel, Zlatan, and the Turning Torso.
But did you know it's also been ranked the sixth-best city in the world for biking?
Malmö has more than 500 kilometres of bike lanes - making transport extremely convenient for residents who opt to travel on two-wheels. In fact, every fourth trip in Malmö is made by bike.
So what makes it so special? The Local headed to Sweden's third-largest city to find out.
This video was produced by The Local and sponsored by Malmö town.
