The Bike Path to Happiness

In the recent “World Happiness Report 2021,” Denmark is ranked as the third happiest country.1  Attaining such a high level of contentment doesn’t just come from personal satisfaction; mutual trust and cooperation among citizens are also significant indicators.  Moreover, societal factors like positive government communication also influences well-being and helps Danish citizens maintain a sunny disposition.





Beautiful blues bound up in shade and texture animate this lightweight patchwork jacket swung with belled sleeves and a pair of roomy chest pockets. Style Name: Baum Und Pferdgarten Buyu Patchwork Shirt Jacket.

Despite the added stress of living through a pandemic, Danes continued to cultivate a society of “fellow-feeling,”  i.e., a friendly and sympathetic association among people with shared experiences.  One of the most obvious shared experiences that contributes to a healthy outlook is bicycle riding.  Sharing the road with cyclists is so important that Denmark built bicycle-friendly infrastructure that’s admired throughout the world.

The collective spirit of a place also matters when it comes to gauging happiness.  In Copenhagen, you see and experience the sustainable effects of bicycle transportation in the urban center.  There’s a unique rhythm in how people move and interact that’s hard to quantify.  Empirical observation reveals that good design also has the power to influence one’s enjoyment of life.  The designers at Baum und Pferdgarten, a Danish fashion house, are doing their part to make style a relevant indicator of happiness. 

You can’t help but smile when you see the cheerful print on the Angie dress fluttering in the breeze like she’s leading an Easter parade.  On cool mornings, the lavender hoodie and matching fleece shorts signal your enthusiasm while cycling to and fro for espresso. If the occasion requires something more sophisticated, pair the Buyu jacket with the Nazyra shorts for a stylish cruise on the bike path to happiness.
