This is a tour I have done for cycle-tour clients in the past - it's a comfortable ride with a mix of city riding, 'green route' riding, forest riding, and coastal riding, covering about 27 km in 3-4 hours.
Plenty of opportunities to extend or shorten the route at several key points in the ride, and there are several decent cafes and small restaurants at about the half-way point just west of the City Zoo where we can stop for a drink or light lunch to recharge for the rest of the trip.
Notable detour points to extend the ride into more forestry/park areas begin at 1) turning west after the Zoo onto Roskildevej and taking the forest/park route in Brøndby (which turns south to the coast), and 2) into Amagerfælled just north of Bella Center. We can assess everyone's fitness at each detour point to see how the group wants to proceed. The detours add roughly an hour to the tour. We can adjust water/drink breaks accordingly.

(and while I am a cycle tour guide, I'm not charging for the ride, just sharing the route with everyone in the meetup as a nice ride around the city.)
This meetup is being hosted by Jimm Pratt from the American and Copenhagen Adventurers Meetup groups. Larry will probably not attend
