A letter from the Prince of Wales

So things have been really good at Hereford Pedicabs HQ recently, first of all we're busy, really busy and definitely seeing an increase in business. We've got lots of potential contracts pending and are putting into place things we've been thinking about for a long time.

One of the other amazing things that happened recently was a letter of recognition from none other that Prince Charles. He dropped us a line to say well done for all of the work we are doing to benefit the environment. Last year we won a Prince's business award for our concept and its inception, so it was great to have some further recognition.
Best of all has to be the change in the weather recently, we can definitely feel the temperature warming and the sun slipping his hat on.
I also recently had the opportunity to visit Copenhagen which was fantastic, bikes everywhere being used for everything. Piles and piles of bikes parked and being used despite the weather. It was very inspiring to soak up the atmosphere and the locationand to try a few of the local delicacies..Whilst in Copenhagen it was great to visit the chap who built one of our Cargo bikes, Hans is one half of Larry Vs Harry who make the Bulliitt bikes which we use Excellent to have the chance to speak to the guy who made the bike and talk about why he did it and his views on cargo cycles as solutions to work and infrastructure solutions, or course over there the bike is the number one form of transport so it's not strange to see huge loads balanced on bikes without a second glance from passers by.

There were plenty of other things to give us food for thought also... maybe next year!?

So all in all the last few weeks have been great, refreshing attitudes, great places and fantastic weather roll on the rest of the year!
