Founded in 2014, we create bikes to empower kids and enable them to ride included in family biking activities.
A bicycle launches a little boy or girl into a brand new world. That’s not to say your child has to be a daredevil to love riding a bike. When a kid pushes off on his or her bike and rides to the mailbox, the store, the park or to school, they become actively engaged, blazing their own paths to independence.
At Cleary Bikes, we believe that riding a bicycle should be fun. It certainly shouldn’t be stressful or scary. Which is why our lightweight kids bicycles are made to thrill children – physically, mentally and most of all, safely.
Based in beautiful Sausalito, California, the Cleary Bikes team has been riding bikes since we first threw a leg over the banana seat on a second-hand Huffy Dragster. We pedaled on through mountain bikes, road bikes, cross bikes, time-trial bikes – and then bikes for our children. And that's when it became clear: kids needed something better. So we sought out to build the best kids bike.
We don't build the costliest bike or the fanciest bike or bikes made to look like cartoon characters. We build tools that are just what kids need - nothing more, nothing less. Like parents, our bikes are destined to be beaten down and abused, while still rolling smoothly through all the bumps in the road. We're parents. We know how it is.
