Arcade, the mobility bicycle

Arcade, the Urban Bicycle.  Our bicycles are designed to be mobility bicycles and make your travelling in town more enjoyable.
   

Arcade, le vélo mobilité

In our view, Bicycles stand for health, energy, freedom and conviviality.
 

 

To promote the development of bicycle use in towns – in addition to walking and the use of public transports – is to contribute to the improvement of our quality of life in towns.

Towns where different means of transport exist harmoniously side-by-side in 30 zones or large meeting zones and where civility is once again respected.

Arcade Bicycles security, nothing is left to chance

Arcade Cycles do not compromise on the safety of their bicycles users.

 

All our bicycles are approved by an independent testing and measuring laboratory, according to french and european standards.

 

Mechanical breaking strength of frames and forks, braking performance on dry and wet ground, tightening of stems and seat posts, lighting…nothing is left to chance.
 

 

At Arcade Cycles, work has meaning

Chez Arcade Cycles, le travail a du sens

At Arcade, we take very seriously the working atmosphere, assistance amongst colleagues, flexibility as well as the development and progression of every employee.

 

It’s all about setting examples, be close and transparent…along with an ambitious training plan and continuous improvement programme in all roles.

 

We don’t all enjoy equal working opportunities.  That is why as employers we exceed the statutory 6% disabled employees percentage.  We also regularly employ the ESAT Sauvegarde 85 from La Roche sur Yon.
