The name Lanterne Rouge has several meanings
The original meaning was the Red Lantern hanging on the back of a train carriage, this way the driver of the train could look back when turning to see that he had not lost the last wagon.
Secondly it has been used for naming the last bicycle rider to cross the finish line. This list is actually saved and remembered just as well as the guys finishing first.
So why the name? – Because it is not always about coming in first, but also about enjoying the ride, taking it a little easier than the rest, and having time to enjoy the scenery – which in this historic street of Copenhagen is quite lovely.
