Hilton London Bankside has launched its very own fleet of bamboo bicycles handmade by the staff at the hotel.
The property partnered with local business, the Bamboo Bicycle Club, to create six custom-built unique bamboo bicycles to be used by guests.
The bikes have been built under the expert guidance and tuition of the team at Bamboo Bicycle Club and were fully tested by bike-riding engineers.
Hilton London Bankside’s bike-building-team consisted of Phoebe Zachariaki, waitress at OXBO Bankside; Milan Pun, gym leisure assistant; Liz Thompson, PA to general manager; Andrew Evans, security manager, Liana Nastase, PR and marketing executive and Georgina Morgan, PR and marketing manager.
James Clarke, general manager, Hilton London Bankside, said: “We are delighted to partner with Bamboo Bicycle Club to create these brilliant bespoke bicycles for our guests to enjoy.
“The building process was a great team building exercise for our six chosen bicycle-builders from different areas of the hotel staff.”
He added: “Hilton London Bankside constantly invests in team member development and this shows clearly in our consistent positive staff feedback and job satisfaction.
“Each of the bicycles will be named after the team member that built it, with a message to let the rider know who hand-built their bicycle.”
The bicycles will be securely stationed outside Hilton London Bankside from next week (10 July) and available for hotel guests to use at any time during their stay, free of charge.
