Pashley are very proud to be producing the bikes for the new West Midlands Cycle Hire Scheme. The scheme is a success story for regional manufacturing, with almost all parts being made in the West Midlands. The bikes are manufactured in Stratford-upon-Avon by Pashley, while the on-street docks (designed by Pashley) are being made by a company in Nuneaton. The locking system is produced by two companies based in Coventry and West Bromwich, and the plastic mouldings for the bikes and docks are made in Telford.
The pedal cycles have three gears to allow for the varying terrain and are fitted with laser safety lights that project an image five meters in front of the bike. The bike features a ‘one handed’ seat clamp so the height of the saddle can be adjusted easily to fit the rider.
The bikes will allow more people the chance to explore the region - including Birmingham, Coventry, Dudley, Sandwell Solihull, Wolverhampton and Walsall - and will support transport demands during large scale events such as the 2022 Commonwealth Games.
