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|
|Herefordshire (free installation included)||4 maximum|
|South Gloucestershire||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 and Conditions.
Herefordshire only: we can install your stands for free.
