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.

The Pashley Team would like to thank attendees and supporters for joining us for the 2017 Pashley Picnic Ride. It was wonderful to have so many of you join us, and to see old friends but also welcome new faces. We were so pleased the weather was kind to us too.

Highlights included seeing riders assemble at the Traditional Cycle Shop in such splendid finery, followed by the sound of ding-dong bells heralding their arrival at Charlecote Park. We also enjoyed the wonderful entertainment provided by the HandleBards and The Swing Cats Trio. These and other special moments have been captured in some lovely photos taken by Pashley Picnic riders, which we have linked below.

We look forward to seeing you all again at the next Picnic Ride!
