Cycle parking at stations

These hubs are ideal for local people looking to include cycling as part of their daily commute or who worry about bike theft when shopping locally.

 

Cycle hub facilities

The new cycle hubs have:
• CCTV
• Key fob entry
• Help points
• Enhanced lighting
• Two tiered user friendly assisted cycle parking racks.

In addition, the hubs have cycle pumps inside and even more cycle stands nearby, making parking your bike easy and convenient.

  1. Enter the hub using your fob
  2. Find a space and lock your bike using your bike chain or D lock
  3. If using the top tier, pull the orange handle, place your bike in the slots, lock your bike with your chain and use the orange handle to lift the bike up and in - easy
  4. The Council do not recommend cable locks. Please consult your local bike shop when  buying a lock
  5. All spaces are first come first served.

Instructions are located on the notice boards in the hubs but if you're still unsure email us or use the help point located inside the hub.
