Bickerton Bikes introduced the first truly portable bicycle to the world and continue to make portable bicycles for discerning cyclists, offering the latest advanced technology, style and performance for riders who need to take their bikes with them and store them efficiently.
The story began in 1968 with Harry Bickerton, having worked as an engineer at both Rolls Royce and Dehavilland, confronted with transport difficulties resulting from a driving ban.
Disappointed with the solution of his hand made road bike, and the best folding bike he could find, he set about designing the first truly portable folding bicycle. He wanted it to be lightweight and easy to use.
The result weighed in at just 17lbs and folded down to the size of a shopping bag. After filing the patent in October 1972, Bickerton Bikes were in business.
