The latest Santander Cycles hire bike has won a gold award at Eurobike, the world’s most important cycle trade show. The award was presented on Sunday night in Friedrichshafen, Germany. The bike is made by Pashley Cycles of Stratford upon Avon.
The Pashley bike won in the “Special Purpose Bike” category and joined twelve other gold award winners. The bike is slowly being rolled out in London – look out for the “5000” serial numbers – and will also be seen later this year in Edinburgh when the recently awarded public bicycle hire scheme commences. (The Edinburgh roll-out will include a pedal-assist electric version of the bike.
As well as an improved handlebar/front wheel interface – the original, non-Pashley bikes suffer from rocking – the series 5000 bike has next-generation lighting-and-tracking capabilities thanks to another English cycling business, Beryl.
