The first of the Edinburgh Bike hire bikes, sponsored by ‘Just Eat’, were unveiled on Monday 17th, September, on the streets of Edinburgh by Mark Beaumont, ultra-endurance British cyclist, and council leader, Adam McVey. The initial offering includes 200 bikes across 19 locations in Central Edinburgh, with a three-year concession agreement that plans to deliver 1,000 bikes, including 100 e-bikes.
 
The bikes, designed and built by Pashley Cycles, have been given names that reference Scottish history and culture, among these Sherlock and Greyfriar. The cycles afford superior handling and ride quality, with high quality Shimano gears and brakes, comfortable gel saddle, front and rear LED lights, full length mudguards, puncture resistant tyres and a step through frame allowing ease of use for all cyclists regardless of height.
 
After the success of the new generation Santander Cycles in London, Pashley have once again partnered with Serco for this project working towards a new mobility solution for cities. The cycles feature an adapted gearing system to tackle the hills of Edinburgh, as well as a new, innovative hybrid lock, which allows secure ‘dockless’ parking within a virtual geo-fenced zone.

On Saturday 14th, postmen Keith Elgar, Graham Hill, Richard Wood & Luke Elgar summited the notorious Alpe d'Huez (Le Tour de France) on their 3 speed Pashley Royal Mail Bikes, in aid of Macmillan Cancer Support. It involved over 13km of relentless riding up to a height of 1815m. They completed the climb in just under 1:30 hours, stopping only once to refill drink bottles at ‘dutch corner’.


Keith mentioned “Our concern whilst driving up the day before to our hotel at the summit was that some sections were too steep for the 3 speed Pashley however they served us brilliantly and despite our legs screaming at us, the post bikes were more than up to the challenge. We now cannot wait to watch le Tour de France stage at Alpe d'Huez on Thursday to watch the pros follow in our pedal strokes.”


Many congratulations to the riders from all at Pashley. If you would like to support their challenge, please visit their fund raising page: Alp d'Huez Challenge

Pashley was founded in 1926 by William ‘Rath’ Pashley. In his early years he apprenticed at the Austin motor Company before serving as a despatch rider in the First World War. Although he focused on two wheeled transport at Pashley, he also developed a small range of motorised vehicles. One of these light weight vehicles, ‘The Pashley Superior’, was developed for the sale of Ice Cream! A restored original of the ‘Superior’ will be on show outside The Traditional Cycle Shop in Stratford-upon-Avon this weekend for the Stratford Festival of Motoring 2018. Feel free to pop-along and take a look.

We are excited to announce the latest addition to the Pashley range, The Briton. A worthy companion to our well-regarded Britannia bicycle, the Briton is a 5 speed model coming in a choice of classic Oxford Blue or Oxblood, with striking cream tyres. It takes inspiration from our flagship Roadster bicycle, but with a lighter specification and a slightly more relaxed riding style.


Please click here for more information on its key features and specification. If you have any questions about our new model we would be happy to answer them via email at hello@pashley.co.uk or phone +44(0)1789 292 263.
