Bære Bikes was born while Stewart, Bære Bike's Founder and Chief Bike Mechanic, was on a trip to Copenhagen. While walking around Copenhagen's busy streets he was impressed by the Scandinavian cargo bike designs he saw. As the son of a proud Dane, Stewart was determined to bring a quality cargo bike back to North America so that he could share the fun with his friends and family. Stewart enlisted the help of his brother and cycling enthusiast Nicholas as well as good friend and weekend road warrior Killian to turn the dream into a reality.
The trio set out on a mission to design and produce a series of high quality cargo bikes that matched the look of the bikes on the streets in Denmark at price that wouldn't break the bank for an average family.
The result? The Bære Bikes cargo bike trio! The bikes are named after the Scandinavian capitals, an homage to the inspiration that led to their creation. The name "Bære" comes from the Danish word for "carry". The team chose Bære because it captures both the bike's Danish origin as well as describes what makes the bikes different, that they can carry you, your kids, your groceries, and whatever else you can think of!
True to the company's Danish roots, Bære Bikes are only constructed out of the highest quality materials and are made to last. Bære Bikes will never sacrifice on quality and are committed to helping families in North America go green by skipping the car and taking their bike instead.
We're sure you'll love your bike as much as we do!
