Pashley Picador 3-speed Tricycle
Pashley Picador 3-speed Tricycle
The Picador is our unique take on the tricycle, a machine that allows you to enjoy all the joys of cycling with the sort of security that only three wheels can provide. Since first introducing this model in the 1960s, Pashley have constantly innovated upon this time-honoured design to make the Picador a truly versatile tricycle for all aspects of your life.
For short hops around town, the padded and sprung saddle keeps you upright and comfortable no matter what the road conditions, whilst the large rear basket is perfect for carrying your shopping with ease. The Picador is just as at home in the countryside, where full mudguards keep you clean and dry and the powerful dual hub and calliper braking system gives you an unbeatable sense of reliability and safety whatever the weather. All this allows you to enjoy all the pleasures of cycling with the security of a hand-built three-wheeled design, making the Picador a truly special all-rounder that will never let you down.
