    Ride like the Dutch

    Gazelle bikes have been designing and manufacturing bikes for over a century, ranging from trekking bikes to city bikes and more recently, e-bikes. We're going to be taking a closer look at the brand and the bikes they produce to find out what makes Gazelle bikes stick out from the many other manufacturers.

    Gazelle, or Royal Dutch Gazelle to give them their full name, started in 1892 as a two-man company producing three different bicycles and has now developed into the largest Dutch bicycle brand selling over 250,000 bicycles a year. All Gazelle bikes are still assembled in their factory in Dieren and in 2015, Gazelle opened their brand new factory, right next to the original building. In 2018, Gazelle celebrated their 15-millionth bike being built. The front of the new factory is floor to ceiling glass so you can walk past and see their mechanics making the bikes!
