The next time you pick up a Santander hire bike in London you may notice a few differences: the wheels will be smaller offering better handling, the saddle will have comfortable gel padding, the gears improved and the brakes more responsive.
That’s because the new fleet of bikes has been manufactured and designed by Pashley, the longest established bike manufacturer in England. Made in their Stratford-upon Avon factory they also include improved front and rear lighting that increases brightness when braking.
Santander have celebrated the launch with a new video starring brand ambassador Jenson Button.
The new bikes look set to get plenty of use – last year was record breaking for Santander Bikes with an unprecedented 10.3 million hires. We’ll be trying one out soon, so watch this space to find out what we think!
