Hand-built & British Since 1926
Since the company was founded by William ‘Rath’ Pashley in 1926, we here at Pashley have been dedicated to hand-building high-quality bicycles and tricycles to meet the diverse and evolving needs of our customers. We are proud to be the longest-established British bicycle manufacturer and one of only three remaining here in the UK. Our bicycles are not only unique in their design and quality, but also in their connection to a well-established heritage of craftsmanship and innovation at our workshop in Stratford-upon-Avon.
It is this British heritage that remains one of the strongest driving forces behind Pashley’s operations today. We have not bowed to the pressure to shift to cheaper overseas manufacture and are to this day committed to the tradition of UK production and craftmanship. As well as being a dedicated British manufacturer, we are directly supplied and supported by almost one hundred other British companies, thereby encouraging the ongoing resurgence of industry here in the heart of England. Although the demand for our bicycles has increased considerably in recent years, we do not wish to sacrifice quality for quantity, and therefore continue to focus on a small-scale, hands-on approach to production. We employ a close-knit team of experienced craftsmen who hand-build each cycle individually, ensuring an unparalleled level of quality and longevity in a bicycle that will provide years of performance, pleasure and reliability.
Another motivating factor for the team at Pashley is an ongoing and deep dedication to the satisfaction of our customers. We are very loyal to the owners of our cycles who in turn are highly discerning, and we therefore strive for constant innovation to match the needs and desires of these customers. We always embrace feedback and suggestions, and it is this that directly led to the development of The Pashley Collection by our small but focused design team. This is a unique and growing range of accessories and attire designed to complement our bicycles and their owners, and to support British producers wherever possible. The very same design team is constantly keen to innovate on our existing ranges of cycles by combining the traditional aspects of the company with quirky and fun new designs. This can be seen in the launch of the Britannia, a traditional bicycle intended to celebrate our British identity, as well as the Tube Rider, a rather more relaxed and unique take on a cruiser-style cycle. Pashley is focused on evolution rather than revolution, and we therefore seek to innovate whilst remaining true to our valued historical identity.
It is by combining a strong British heritage, an impeccable quality of hands-on manufacture and the urge to innovate that Pashley is able to be truly unique to this day. As we say, our bicycles are ‘different by design... distinctive by nature’, and we hope you agree and enjoy the experience that a Pashley cycle can bring.

Meet Briton, Pashley's latest urban men´s bicycle model. Simply put, it is the men's version of the popular women's Britannia model. Upright riding position, classic and discreetly stylish appearance and over 90 years of experience in handmade bicycles. This level of elegance is something that only Pashley can achieve. England's oldest still operating bicycle manufacturer based in Stratford-Upon-Avon.
Briton´s best asset is probably its timelessness; it is equally well suited for a classical bike enthusiast as it is for a modern urban man looking for something unique. When something has been properly designed, it cannot be touched by time. Technically speaking Briton has been put into use in UK's rainy conditions. So it does work not so unexpectedly in a climate like Finland as well. The Sturmey Archer drum brakes do not lose their stopping power even in wet conditions, and the legendary manufacturer's 5-speed C50 hub gear is not scared of water, mud, ice or slush!
