More than 150 electric bikes were today made available for hire at docking stations across the West Midlands, giving even more people the opportunity to cycle.

The eBikes, made by Pashley, are the latest addition to the West Midlands Cycle Hire (WMCH) scheme and are available for hire in Birmingham, Coventry, Sandwell, Solihull, Stourbridge, Sutton Coldfield, Walsall and Wolverhampton.

Their arrival will allow riders to make longer journeys more easily and will offer extra help to those who may have difficulty pedalling a regular cycle or struggle with hills. And affordable hire costs give those put off by the expense of buying a new eBike the opportunity to give it a go.

Pashley are honoured to receive the inaugural NVN Nick Carpenter Award – along with our project partners Simpact, Warwick Manufacturing Group (WMG) and Foresight Innovations – for our ‘Articulating Lightweight Electrically-assisted Cargo Solution’ a zero-emission e-cargo tricycle, designed to meet the rapidly growing demands of the final-mile delivery market.

With a unique, specially designed Innovation Trophy, the purpose of the Award is to identify and promote examples of outstanding and innovative NVN funded R&D projects. The award trophy also celebrates the vision and innovation which Nick Carpenter brought to his work throughout his lifetime.

Adrian Williams, Managing Direct, Pashley Cycles said: “It is a great honour to win this award as we know how enthusiastic Nick was to encourage innovative thinking and new product development. Whilst we realised that there was a huge potential market for the truly low carbon vehicle we had conceived, we then had to make the concept a reality, and the “ALECS” Team faced many challenges during the NVN Proof of Concept and Production Readiness stages. It was only through teamwork and by finding innovative solutions to problems encountered along the way - whether in the drivetrain, materials and structural engineering, or production process optimization - that we were able to bring the project to a successful conclusion. We now have a world-leading product that we can sell internationally.”

Pashley today reveal advance details of an innovative NEW UK designed and built electrically assisted e-cargo trike which is to enter production in April 2021.  Currently under the project name “ALECS”, the Articulating Lightweight Electrically-assisted Cargo Solution will form the platform for a NEW GENERATION of configurable products to meet the rapidly growing market for zero-emission last mile cargo vehicles. ALECS is aimed at filling the gap in the mid-market. Currently larger scale requirements are serviced by electric vans or expensive EAVs, and smaller requirements by e-cargo bikes, and ALECS will sit between the two.

VE Day (8 May 2020) will resonate with everyone differently, strongly with some, others less so. 
 
As a boy, I had no interest in history and I was completely oblivious to the impact WW2 had on my parents who lived through it. It was only much later in life that I came to realise that the emotional scars carried by my parents, Grandparents, Aunts and Uncles, were borne silently and not shared. I didn’t even think to ask about the physical scars my Grandfather bore on his body when we sunbathed on the beach in Cornwall. He was such a softly spoken, jolly, kind man. Yet he, George A. Newling MC (the Military Cross from the Battle of Gavrelle, WW1) had returned from New Zealand - where he had taken the family to set up a trading company in the 1930s – to fight once more. And also to lose his eldest son. 
 
That was my mother’s eldest brother, Michael Alan Newling D.F.C. - one of The Few – a hurricane and spitfire pilot, he died in Channel operations on 6th July 1941. My mother was the last to see him, at the railway station. I was named after him.

Dear Customer,
 
Please note that the Pashley factory has brought forward its annual Summer holiday and is now on an “early Spring holiday” shut down (from March 25th to March 31st). This shut down is then being extended to support the national plans to defeat the coronavirus, provisionally at this stage until Friday 17th April.
 
In order to support the essential nature of the cycling sector, some key members of staff will be available to support Serco in the operation of public hire bikes for London and Edinburgh and to ship spares and stock bicycles to retailers where possible.
 
We apologise for any inconvenience but we hope you will agree that this approach reflects a considered response to the challenges we are all facing.
 
We will wherever possible (and appropriate) be responding to emails through the contact details found on our website.
 
Please stay safe.
 
With best wishes. 
 
Pashley Cycles

A new fleet of rentable e-bikes has been launched in Edinburgh today (Monday 2 March) which will see the Scottish capital create the UK’s largest fleet of docked electrically powered bicycles.
 
The new fleet of 168 e-bikes was officially launched by Transport for Edinburgh and the scheme’s operator, Serco. Edinburgh’s e-bikes will be phased into the city’s existing cycle hire scheme – Just Eat Cycles.
 
The e-bikes provide a maximum supported speed of 15 mph and can be hired and dropped off at existing locations in Edinburgh Cycle Hire’s network of 90 hire points. The scheme is already home to 500 pedal bikes. 
 
Each full charge provides a range of 50 miles and provides a constant electric assist while users pedal. Serco monitors bike power levels using real-time technology and replaces batteries when they are running low.
 
Made in Britain by Pashley, Edinburgh’s e-bikes are similar to the existing pedal models in the city but have a slightly different frame and colour scheme.
