Pashley's New Hire Bike For London

Pashley Santander London Cycle Hire - Next Generation

Next Generation of Santander Cycles roll into London
 
  • All-new design offers improved handling, safety and comfort, alongside innovative smart technology 
  • Bikes have been designed and built by England's longest established cycle manufacturer Pashley Cycles
  • Santander celebrates launch with new video starring brand ambassador Jenson Button
 
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has announced that the next generation of Santander Cycles have today arrived in London. 
 
The first of the new bikes have rolled onto the capital’s streets, with thousands set to join TfL’s flagship cycle hire scheme over the next few years.
 
The new cycles will offer riders improved handling, safety and comfort, with a new gel saddle, lower frame, tyres with puncture prevention, new gear hub, improved front and rear Blaze lighting, and bluetooth. 
 
The bikes have been built by England's longest established cycle manufacturer, Pashley Cycles in Stratford-upon-Avon, as part of an industrial team assembled by scheme operators Serco. They have been designed to be easier to ride and maintain, meaning more bikes will be available to hire more often and reduce maintenance costs. 
 
Last year was a record-breaking year for Santander Cycles with an unprecedented 10.3m hires - 4.4 per cent up on 2015. This year there have been more than 8.7m hires, with five of the nine months beating year-on-year records for the number of journeys being made.
