The rise in popularity in cycling is keenly felt across the UK. The number of journeys taken by bike each day has increased almost every year since 2008. With two million people cycling every day, it is clearly becoming a popular and sustainable travel choice.
This is also happening in universities across the country, with more students and staff taking to wheels for that daily journey. However, a NUS study that investigated student attitudes towards cycling found that the challenge of not having safe places to lock their bikes was becoming a key barrier in getting students riding bikes.
At Cyclehoop, we are constantly striving to make cycling more secure and convenient by designing cycle parking solutions to tackle these challenges and break down the barriers to people cycling. In 2018, we designed and delivered two major cycle hubs for the London Borough of Enfield, each providing cycle parking for 50 bikes and three accessible bikes. Prior to this, we delivered our largest ever install of two-tier cycle parking at Cambridge University. This provided 678 cycle parking spaces for over 150 departments, faculties and schools within the institution. Both projects also included a fitting of pumps and repair stands, so that users can make quick repairs and keep their tyres pumped while on the go.
There are numerous benefits to cycling including; physical and mental health, financial savings as well as being an environmental choice that drastically reduces greenhouse gas emissions and pollution.

Cyclehoop know that not everyone has the same requirements, so we offer *free cycle parking audits to make sure you get the right project for your needs.
