The Openhouse Cycle Pannier remains one of our most loved and most travelled products, with units having been shipped not only in the UK but as far afield as America, Canada and Germany!
The first Cycle Response Unit was piloted by London Ambulance Service, which was the idea of paramedic Tom Lynch who was based at Waterloo Ambulance station. The trail proved successful, demonstrating that response times to pedestrianised areas were reduced and the cycle responder could deal with a number of illnesses and injuries with the kit carried in their panniers, saving 250 hours of ambulance availability over six months.
We manufactured the first cycle panniers for LAS them and continue to do so to this day, although many things have changed over the years to make the design more functional and efficient – what are those things?
One of the first cycle response bikes with one of the first panniers is part of the collection at the Science Museum in South Kensington, London.
Fancy a pannier of your own? Made to Order and Off the Shelf (both linked to product pages) units could be a fantastic addition to your service! Get in touch with us today; firstname.lastname@example.org
