What can you see on every street in Copenhagen? A bike! That’s right everywhere our designers looked – right, left, up, down- they spotted bikes. That’s why our Nordic collection was dotted with bikes on girls tees and boys hoodies. Cycling is an integral part of Danish life and even has its own blog capturing cycle style, Cycle Chic. For many, it may be their only mode of transportation. Did you know more people bike to work in the greater Copenhagen area than in the entire United States? Urban planners in Copenhagen wanted to make cycling easy not an uphill battle for their residents. Many factors contribute to Copenhagen’s biking success, one being that they have a relatively flat terrain and specialized cycle tracks that criss-cross the city. Slowly but surely, progressive American cities are becoming more bike friendly like San Francisco where bikes lanes are being widened and free bike valet is offered at major events.
