Pashley Cycles is developing their new social-distancing bicycle… the S-D2020!

Chief designer, Tong Inchiek, says “We are creating a special model which ensures cyclists keep 2 metres from other cyclists and pedestrians. Its special “S-Dhoop”, consisting of two horizontal semi-circular tubes each with a 2 metres radius, is unique and leaves one in no doubt about the safe social distance. The hinged halves of the ‘S-Dhoop’ can be raised and lowered – a bit like a butterfly’s wings – as required.”

Marketing director, April Furst, says the S-D2020 bicycle will be available soon.
