Fentongollan

  fent-13fent-12fent-11fent-10fent-9fent-8fent-7fent-6fent-5fent-4fent-3fent-2fent-1“We commissioned Leap at the beginning of this year as we were looking for a refresh of the Fentongollan brand; their collaborative approach has made us feel like we have a true creative partner and has given us the flexibility we need as a business. They have immersed themselves in understanding our business and thus have started evolving our brand to match. All the marketing collateral they have produced for us this year, has not only looked fantastic but has been delivered on time and on budget; whilst working with them has been completely stress free, which is no mean feat on some of our larger product catalogues. This has also resulted in an increase of sales by 20% across all departments, so far. We are really excited about the coming year, the continued evolution of our brand and starting to look at a new website. We would recommend working with Leap to anyone; they are one of the team now.”... Read More

Times are changing.

In Almost Every European Country, Bikes Are Outselling New Cars

by KRISHNADEV CALAMUR... Read More

We know that Europeans love their bicycles — thinkAmsterdam or Paris. Denmark even has highways specifically for cyclists.

Indeed, earlier this month, NPR’s Lauren Frayer reported that Spain, which has long had a love affair with cars, is embracing the bicycle: For the first time on record, Lauren noted, bicycles outsold cars in the country.

But it’s becoming a Continent-wide phenomenon. More bikes were sold in Italy than cars — for the first time since World War II.

This prompted us to look at the figures across the 27 member states of the European Union for both cars and bicycles. New-car registrations for Cyprus and Malta weren’t available, so we took them out of the comparison.

Here’s what we found: Bicycle sales outpaced new-car sales last year in every one of those countries, except Belgium and Luxembourg. The top five countries by bicycle sales can be seen in the top chart.

We decided to delve a little deeper into the figures and see which of these countries had the highest rates of bicycle-to-car ownership. Those states can be seen in the second chart.

So, what explains the numbers?

Parts of the data can be explained by the slump in car sales across Europe. Car sales reached a 20-year low earlier this year. More recent figures showed they were recovering.

This decline coincided with the worldwide recession, which hit European economies particularly hard, though there are signs they may be recovering).

The U.S. has fared much better. Last month, car sales jumped to pre-recession levels. But U.S. automakers face another problem: Millennials aren’t interested in buying cars. Bike sales, on the other hand, are solid.

Leap have a real love of cycling with 4 of our team over the last few years getting bikes via the Governments Cycle scheme. We have a our own transport policy and our plan in the future is to get a cycle shelter and bike racks installed at our new studio.
