Never mind Boris Johnson’s rented bike scheme – get a bike of your own. Made.com, the website that aims to bring good design within reach of one and all, is selling the famous Dutch Hollander bikes for just £169-£179 (usual price £539).
Hollander bikes have been going for some 60 years and are acknowledged to be well made and beautifully finished, with a properly sprung saddle. There are men’s and women’s versions; each comes in a black metallic finish. Delivery will take around 10 weeks – just in time for early summer.
