The Light Blue Trinity


The Light Blue Bicycle began its life way back in 1895, when John Albert Townsend produced hand built bicycles for members of Cambridge University. These custom made machines were produced in a converted dairy in Norfolk Street, Cambridge at a rate of around six per week. The Light Blue name was taken from the University colours, but in those days all the bicycles were painted black.
