Video: iconic Pedersen bicycles return to their home town

MOST READ

Around 40 riders and their vintage Dursley Pedersen bicycles returned to the town in Gloucestershire where they were made in the late nineteenth century.

Danish inventor Mikael Pedersen designed the unique bicycle in the 1860s, which features a ‘hammock’ saddle and thin frame tubes to reduce weight.

Twenty-eight of the bikes in today’s Pedersen Pilgrimage were original machines, some dating back to 1900. Production ceased in 1917 though many bicycles of the Pedersen design have been made by independent builders since then.
