Brooks England Unveils the Limited Pelago Stavanger

Pelago Stavanger
When Brooks England made its official debut way back in 1866, it’s likely the founders had no idea its business would continue to make headlines as far out as 2016.

Sure, a company built on manufacturing high-quality bicycle saddles could remain relevant for decades but to continuously outdo itself year in and year out had to always seem a bit far-fetched. Well, if you could believe it, the esteemed manufacturer just lifted the curtain on yet another jaw-dropping release, this time one which pays tribute to the history of cycling — and Brooks Englands’ 150th anniversary.

Dubbed the Pelago Stavanger, Brooks’ uber-limited run of this high-end model is as timeless as the company itself, providing owners with the quality the company’s been known for. Featuring a copper-plated fork, hand-numbered copper badge, and fully hand-built in and assembled in Helsinki, Finland, just 15 in total were manufactured. Conceived in cooperation with its Dashing Bikes project collaboration, the Pelago is just one in a long line of releases celebrating the company’s anniversary.


The Stavanger pays homage to the history of [biking] with its timeless design aesthetic, contemporary specs, and second-to-none quality,” read a companion press release. “Whether you are commuting, gravel grinding, or off in the back-country for a long ride, the double-butted 4130 CrMo steel frame multi-purpose geometry and details make it an excellent all-rounder. The Shimano 105 components and TRP Spyre mechanical disc brakes make Stavanger reliable and easy to maintain.”

With each model hand stamped to commemorate its number in the collection (again, of which only 15 exist), owners won’t have to look far to be reminded of its exclusivity.  Furthermore, since a hand-built, limited-run of anything is hardly ever inexpensive, Brooks England’s Pelago Stavanger is no exception. Though its price tag is situated at a lofty $2,495, the incredibly high quality of the Pelago makes it worth every single penny to prospective buyers.

England to Unveil the World’s Longest Coastal Hiking Path Later This Year
Coastal Hiking Path

There’s nothing like a long walk in the woods to clear the mind, to reset, to detox from daily life. We would argue the longer, the better. For some serious trekkers, in fact, only a months-long thru-hike of one of the world’s longest trails (think the Appalachian or Continental Divide Trails) will do. This year, England will unveil one more: The world’s longest continuous coastal hiking path.

At nearly 2,800 miles, the England Coast Path will be the world’s longest managed, waymarked coastal path. Large portions of the route have long been open to the public. However, Natural England spent nearly a decade securing private land access, clearing new trails, renewing existing trails, and piecing those portions together to form a single, continuous trail that circumnavigates the entire country. It will connect the Lake District and the Formby sand dunes in the northwest to the breathtaking landscape of Scotland in the northeast to the charming seaside towns and resorts like Plymouth in the southeast to the Welsh border in the southwest.
