Bicycles are perhaps the most popular form of transport in Denmark, as can be seen by the statistics: with a population of over 5.6 million people, Denmark has 4 million bicycles, which is basically one for every person.

There is also a wide range of bicycles, including the most common front baskets, mountain bikes and so on, as well as many "Danish" bicycles, the most important of which is the TrioBike, which resembles the "backwards donkey" of the north-east.

The Danish love for their children is not simply a matter of spoiling them, but a matter of expectation and respect, which is why many Danes travel with their children. This is where the "backwards donkey ride" came into being. The so-called "backwards donkey" is a small front trailer, only it is filled with live babies.

According to a survey, the Backwards Donkey is the most popular and respected bicycle among all Danish households with two children and more, with around one third of households owning at least one Backwards Donkey. "The Backwards Donkey meets Danish standards in terms of design and safety. Most of them have a roof that protects them from the wind and rain, either a plastic or iron roof. So little ones can enjoy their time in the car, whether it's summer or winter, whether it's stormy or freezing outside.


In addition to the most common "backwards donkeys", there are also a number of less popular but innovative "Danish" types of bicycle.

The "rear trailer", which places the little ones on the rear seat of the bike.

The most important thing, of course, is the Danish concept of "cycling, health and green mobility". Whether it's a sunny summer day or a snowy winter day, from a junior high school student to an old man with grey hair and beard, sometimes it's a mackintosh, sometimes it's a long skirt or a suit and collar, but all that remains is the two wheels underneath. This is how the bicycle has quietly found its way into every corner of Danish life.
