• In need of a saddlebag or pannier? Take a look at our Carradice range 15 December 2015 | View comments

  • Practical Cycles is a well-respected source of Carradice saddlebags and panniers - and no wonder, as it is one of our favourites of all of the brands that we stock. Given our extensive range of Carradice products at competitive prices, there's no need for avid users of bikes and cargo cycles to look anywhere else!

    The company was founded back in the 1930s, when Wilf Carradice made his first saddlebag and was asked to create further copies for his friends. Mr Carradice was producing all sorts of products by the end of the decade, including tents, sleeping bags and more. By the 1940s and 1950s, Carradice was the first choice of many a tourist.

    Mr Carradice retired in the 1970s, with cyclist Neville Chadwick taking over the business after noticing the huge demand for high quality cycle bags. His son, David, replaced him in 1994, with the company continuing to go from strength-to-strength since this point. Carradice bags are particularly popular in such countries as Germany, the USA and Norway.

    We are here to help if you’re interested in obtaining robust, great-looking and iconic Carradice bags at the right price. The Carradice Barley Saddlebag, for instance, is an ideal match for cycling commuters and day riders. It has a capacity of seven litres and is manufactured from waterproof and re-proofable cotton duck - the material with which the Carradice brand is synonymous.

    You can opt for a green saddlebag with tan leather straps or instead purchase a black bag with white straps. These saddlebags feature metal D ring strapping points that allow you to attach jackets, while two useful handy outer pockets make organising your kit a breeze. You will also note a reflective patch and a lamp loop.

    The Carradice Bike Bureau is another consistent seller, much-loved by our valued customers and cycling enthusiasts the world over. This 26-litre bag is made from cotton duck canvas, which keeps your items dry and safely protected from the elements. It features a double flap to keep the top of the pannier dry and clean, as well as three carry handles that give you extra choice in terms of carrying position.

    Four bright 3m reflectors also come as part of this bag, as does as a stormproof drawtop. This bag is perfectly suited to cycling office workers, which is just one more reason why we are so proud to stock it here at Practical Cycles.
