About Pashley Cycles

Hand-built & British Since 1926

Since the company was founded by William ‘Rath’ Pashley in 1926, we here at Pashley have been dedicated to producing high-quality, hand-built bicycles to meet the diverse and evolving needs of out customers. We are proud to be the longest-established British bicycle manufacturer as one of only three remaining here in the UK. Our bicycles are not only unique in their design and quality, but also in their connection to a well-established heritage of craftsmanship and innovation at our workshop in Stratford-upon-Avon.

It is this British heritage that remains one of the strongest driving forces behind Pashley’s operations today. We did not bow to the pressure to shift to cheaper overseas manufacture and are to this day committed to supporting the tradition of UK-based production. We are directly supplied and supported by almost one hundred other British companies, thereby encouraging the ongoing resurgence of industry here in the heart of England. Although the demand for our bicycles has increased dramatically in recent years, we refuse to sacrifice quality for quantity and therefore continue to focus on a small-scale, hands-on approach to production. We employ a close-knit team of experienced craftsmen who hand-build each cycle individually, ensuring an unparalleled level of quality and longevity in a bicycle that will provide years of performance, pleasure and reliability.

Another key motivating factor at Pashley is an ongoing and deep dedication to the satisfaction of the owners of our bicycles. We are very loyal to our customers who in turn are highly discerning, and we therefore strive for constant innovation to match the needs and desires of these customers. We always embrace feedback and suggestions, and it is this that directly led to the development of The Pashley Collection by our tightly focused team of designers. This is a unique and growing range of accessories and attire designed to complement our bicycles and to support British producers wherever possible. The very same design team is constantly keen to innovate on our existing products by combining the traditional aspects of the company with quirky and fun new designs. This can be seen in the launch of the Britannia, a traditional bicycle intended to celebrate our British identity, as well as the Tube Rider, a rather more relaxed and unique take on a cruiser-style cycle. Pashley is focused on evolution rather than revolution, and we therefore seek to innovate whilst remaining true to our important historical identity.

It is by combining a strong British heritage, an impeccable quality of hands-on manufacture and the urge to innovate that Pashley is able to be truly unique to this day. As we say, our bicycles are ‘different by design ... distinctive by nature’, and we hope you enjoy the experience that only a Pashley cycle can bring.
