A Fun, Unique Bike for the Family

Designing sweet colored cargo bicycles with rear buckets that can carry up to four kids plus cargo, MADSEN Cycles puts a new twist on family bikes. We hope your whole family falls in love with your new MADSEN bike — as we have.
Bike Outside, Make Memories

A bicycle for the whole family, a MADSEN bike makes it easy for you to get your children outside to create unforgettable and happy memories. Pack sandwiches and drinks, strap your kids into the bucket, and head to the park. The bucket is equipped with two removable yet secure bench seats and four seatbelts, and able to carry up to 600 pounds!

If you have older children who have special needs or are unable to ride a bicycle on their own, giving them the chance to feel the exhilaration of a bike ride is priceless! Everyone deserves that, and riding will definitely put a smile on their faces — and yours, too.  Let our bikes help you create memories over and over again.

Get outside and make memories!

Ride in Style, Comfort, and Ease

We are not the first to place a bucket on a bicycle, but we are the first to do it right. Our bike is the first and still the only cargo kid bike in the US that can hold anything and everything, including children, groceries, picnics, and even dogs – without extra packs, bags, straps and buckles – just throw it in the bucket and go!

The MADSEN is designed for ease of use; it feels much like riding a regular upright bicycle. It has nine gears that help you cycle uphill, and a 20-inch rear wheel that makes the bike easy to balance. And now, with the addition of the electric pedal assist option with levels 1-9, the possibilities are endless! Our bikes have a classic, vibrant style that brightens the road, as well as your Instagram feed.

Leave your car at home and take your eco-friendly MADSEN bike cargo wagon out instead. Hop on and go on a little adventure with your kids, drop them off at soccer practice, or simply pick up groceries. Wherever you go, MADSEN will make the trip more fun and memorable for you and your family.
