Ok, I have to admit, it's been years since I was on a bicycle. But when I saw this beautiful vintage looking bike from the new Victoria Pendleton range, I wanted to don a headscarf and go cycling on the sea front pretending it was 1950.
Former British cycling champion Victoria Pendleton's latest cycle in the range is perfect to get the ladies out on their bikes this summer in style!
“Everyone knows I am passionate about cycling,” said Victoria Pendleton, “and I want to encourage as many women as I can back onto their bikes which is why I am so proud of the fact that my classic bikes are for everyday women. You don’t have to wriggle into lycra to ride them and they are perfect for nipping down to the shops or a ride around town or countryside, with friends.”
The 'Ashwell' is the latest in the Victoria Pendleton range at Halfords. This 'Dutch Style' shopper is simply stunning looking and would make any woman proud to be seen riding on it. Aimed at women who are just starting out cycling maybe for slightly longer rides or even just women that haven't been on a bike in years, it'll give you assurance straight away due to the uncomplicated clutter like 20 extra gears you won't use or disc breaks like on most mens bikes!
The retro 1950's styling really gives it a timeless classic look with all the comfort of any quality modern bike. The classic black colour step-through frame comes in 17 and 19 inch sizes and has colour co-ordinated mudguards and chainguard to keep you mud and oil free. It's quality Sturmy Archer 5-Speed gears are all you need, being uncomplicated they're really easy to use and with the traditional swept back handle bars it really gives you a relaxed, but confident ride.
The seat is nice and wide, padded and sprung, so truly comfortable - unlike mountain bikes that give you bottom ache for weeks after! The seat and stitched handle-bar grips are also covered in a beautiful tan coloured leather-style material, that with the cream coloured tyres gives the look of the bike that extra bit of class. With luggage rack and a room for an optional wicker basket at the front, there's plenty of space for your groceries on a trip to your local shop.
The Pendleton Ashwell Hybrid Bike is exclusively distributed by Halfords Ltd. and available online or instore priced at £329.99. This bike is also qualifies for free in-store build and inspection as well as a free 6 week first service.
