Islabikes launches the Imagine Project: A sustainable manufacturing initiative


With its newly launched Imagine Project, Islabikes is developing a small range of sustainably produced cycles that will be manufactured in the UK.

These will be utility ‘riding to school’ bikes that will sit alongside the current Islabikes models and will be available to customers to use on a rental basis.

The Imagine Project will initially begin on a small scale with availability of the new bikes being very limited in the early stages.

Islabikes is looking for a modest number of early-adopters to play a crucial role in helping them develop the product, manufacturing methods and service.

The Imagine Project will be open-source and Islabikes will be inviting contributions and sharing their discoveries as the project grows and develops.

The founder of Islabikes, Isla Rowntree will be available for comment on the Imagine Project on the Islabikes stand (A80) at the Cycle Show at the NEC in Birmingham on Thursday 22nd and Saturday 24th September.
