Stable, sturdy, and spacious, the Christiania tricycle lets you carry kids and cargo safely, swiftly, and without a worry about soaring petrol prices or scarce parking.

Introduced in 1978, it has revolutionised family transport in Copenhagen (a quarter of families with two or more children own a tricycle), and it is now exported worldwide.

The Danish Design Centre has awarded Christiania Bikes® its 2010/11 Classic Design Prize.

The first Christiania tricycle in London was purchased in 1997 by Terence Conran for home deliveries from his flagship grocery store Bluebird; since then hundreds of families have seen their children grow up on a Christiania tricycle; their most common comment: “I cannot think how we would have coped without”. Similarly dozens of business, from florists to refuse collectors, from restaurants to handymen, from painters to educators have saved thousands of pounds by using a Christiania tricycle.
