If you’re a cyclist in need of a bike, or even just a cyclist, listen up. Summer is (hopefully) just around the corner and those long country rides in the gleaming sunshine might soon become a reality. In light of this, one of our superb local businesses on the scheme have decided to offer an exclusive May offer on their bikes, allowing you to purchase just in time for the season at a hugely reduced rate…
Brake Bikes is the brainchild of Blackheath based designer and cycling enthusiast Rachel Thomas. Her ingenious and wholly unique bike designs were conceived through fusing two distinctly different mediums: Californian style, and British design. Her story is an intruiging one:
“The brakebikes concept of Brake was born whilst Rachel Thomas was living in Los Angeles. Realisation of the concept led to a fact finding visit to Taiwan for manufacturing processes. It was here that Rachel’s British design influence resulted this first edition of unique single speed bikes.”
So with this worldly hybrid of inspiration Rachel returned to the UK and now sells Brake Bikes all over London, and has them stocked in some local Bike Shops (including Pedal It), in Lewisham and Greenwich.
The first edition Brake Bikes are three designed single speed bikes, in specific three-colour combinations. Limited to less than 100 in each colour combination, they are also numbered and exclusive to each buyer.

The consistency and distinction of this unique brand of Bike means that their price tag is the same for all: £350. However, this May, Rachel is offering Lewisham Card holders a mammoth discount of £100 off all her bikes, so each will cost £250, putting you in prime position to snap up one of these colourful specimens for the rest of the year!
The discount works with a special code for the Lewisham Card; all you need to do is comment below with your name and email address (if you’d prefer to message or email us your email address that’s fine, and we’ll send you the code. From there you can order your Bike through her site using the code. Be quick, as stock is limited!
As cycling becomes ever more popular and necessary in our heavily polluted city, think before you buy and make the most of what’s on offer. Leave over-priced and poor-service Halfords alone and instead shop with local retailers such as Brake Bikes, Pedal It (Lee), Compton Cycles (Catford), or Vaidas Cycles (Honor Oak) – all fantastic independent bike shops in our borough ready to help you choose your dream bike!
