A wheelie big celebration is planned in Bradford on Avon to celebrate 50 years of the Moulton Bicycle Company.
A party is being held next Friday between 2-5pm, at the company’s factory in Holt Road.
The business, launched in 1962 by Dr Alex Moulton, was the first bike makers to produce small wheeled bicycles for adults.
Dr Moulton said: “The Moulton bicycle was born out of my resolve to challenge and improve upon the classic bicycle, with its diamond frame and large wheels, which has locked bicycle design into that form since the pioneering work in England of Starley and others at the end of the 19th century.”
Friday’s party will celebrate one of the jewels of British manufacturing. Moulton bike fan Sir James Dyson is expected to attend the golden anniversary bash.
