INTERBIKE 2009 – Besides the Clubman prototype, Pashley also had these new ladies’ bicycles called the Poppy.  A departure from Pashley’s usually reserved, rich pallette, the Poppy is available in Pastel Blue and Blush Pink. They’re a simpler version of the Sonnet (pictured at bottom of post), but come complete with the creature comforts expected from the upscale English brand.

They have cork grips, a metal chainguard and full fenders.  The frame is a lugged steel hand-built frame with 3-speed Sturmey Archer rear hub and fully enclosed hub brakes.  MSRP is $995.

Hit ‘more’ for additional photos and features…


They come with stainless steel frame pumps so your gentlemen caller(s) may assist, post haste, in the unfortunate event of a flat tyre.


A Brooks saddle, cream colored tires and fully detailed fenders with chrome accents complete the package.


The Sonnet Bliss is one of three more feature-rich ladies bikes and includes a basket, dynamo hub and lights, rear rack and kickstand and integrated rear wheel lock.
