Christiania Bikes is one of the very few European bike brands that is still manufactured in Europe, on the Danish island of Bornholm. Born in Freetown Christiania, they have been conquering the streets of Copenhagen since 1984. While all the Danish cargo bike brands sell great bicycles, our heart beats a little extra for the Christiania bike, its history, and contribution towards a car-free urban society.
Driving a cargo bike is something really special and there is probably no better place to try this sensational mode of transport for the first time than in Copenhagen.
