Free Cycle Parking

Secure, visible cycling parking is a great way to deter bicycle thieves and encourage more cycling. Our Take a Stand® scheme offers free cycle parking stands to businesses, voluntary organisations and community groups.

How it works

Life Cycle UK works with Local Authorities to provide access to free high-quality cycle stands, particularly targeting small organisations who otherwise can't afford cycle parking. We supply and deliver stands free of charge, the recipient must simply install them within 3 months at an accessible location off the public highway.

Who is eligible?

We can offer free stands to businesses, voluntary sector groups, churches, pubs, surgeries etc. in the following areas:

Local Authority Area How Many Stands?
Bath & NE Somerset 2 maximum
Bristol 4 maximum
Bournemouth 5 maximum
Derby 5 maximum
Herefordshire (free installation included) 4 maximum
Swindon 4 maximum

Not sure if you are in a qualifying area? Enter your postcode to confirm your Local Authority.


We offer two types of stand: "bolt down" or "sink in". You will have to install your own stands: for guidance see our Terms & Conditions.

Herefordshire only: we can install your stands for free.
