This homegrown bicycle brand Moulton Bicycles features hugely in the history books of Bradford on Avon in a significant way. There is so much history behind the brand which was started over 50 years ago to express in this sponsor summary. However, you can read it for yourself here.
Moulton Bicycles is still based at the heart of Bradford on Avon on the Holt Road. Many of us have passed us and never knew what artistry was going on behind the walls of The Hall. In the bicycle workshops, there are a handful of master craftsman assembling hand built bicycles. It really was memorable the first time I visited as the smell of frames being machined and brazed was a unique experience and took me back to my childhood days and reminded me of my father’s engineering workshop.
Moulton Bicycles has made a significant ongoing influence on how bikes are made today and continue to do so from the workshops in Bradford on Avon.
As a homegrown bicycle brand, we are very pleased to have Moulton Bicycles sponsor the event and they will have a presence at the event showcasing their bikes. Our goal for this sponsor is to inform the local community about this historic company, the importance it has made to Bradford On Avon and to showcase the great bikes that they still make today.

Arguably one of the largest employers in Bradford On Avon (Don’t quote me on this) is AB Dynamics.
Founded in 1982 as a vehicle engineering consultancy, AB Dynamics has grown steadily to become one of the world’s most trusted suppliers of automotive test systems. Today, our clients include the top 25 global vehicle manufacturers, all seven Euro NCAP laboratories and numerous government test authorities. Who would have known that this leading business in their sector was nestled in Bradford On Avon.
Many of you would have seen their nice new building based on Middleton Drive on the route out of the town towards Holt. What they do there is extremely complex and mind-boggling however everyone is safety conscious these days and locals should be extremely proud to have such an innovative company on their doorstep.
AB Dynamics will have a presence on the weekend of the event which will give many a great opportunity to learn more about what goes on within the company and what the vision is. If you want to learn more feel free to get in touch as they would love to hear from you.
