Cycle parking is provided across Worcestershire, making
it easier to get around by bike. There are four main types of
cycle parking available:
These are the most popular form of cycle parking and consist of
a piece of steel that is attached to the ground in an upside down U
shape. The advantage of the Sheffield Stand is that you can attach
both wheels and the frame to the stand.
These stands are often attached to walls and consist of a clip
to which the front wheel of the bike can be secured. Unlike the
Sheffield Stands, the frame is not secured so cyclists are advised
to use a Sheffield Stand if a choice is available.
The most secure way to leave your bike if you are going to be
away for more than a few hours. Lockers are currently available at
Great Malvern, Bromsgrove, Pershore and Evesham train stations.
Contact staff in the ticket offices at these stations if you are
interested in using one of the lockers.
Cycle parking facilities are marked on all cycling maps produced by the county
Bike Station (Cycle Storage)
Secure bicycle storage is available at Bricycles premises in
Malvern Link, close to Malvern Link Rail Station.
Bicycles can be left at the premises where they will be kept
securely locked and protected by insurance cover. Rates are
available for daily, weekly or monthly storage and comprehensive
servicing is also available whilst bicycles are left.
Cycle hoops are an innovative cycle parking
solution that retrofits a secure hoop onto existing street
furniture such as bollards, lamp columns and railings to create
bespoke cycle parking.
As part of our commitment to work with local partners to
encourage cycling, Worcestershire County Council are currently
providing grants in the form of free Sheffield Cycle stands to
employers, businesses and schools within Worcestershire.
The stands are ideal for organisations that want to encourage
and promote cycling as a suitable form of transport for reaching
their premises. We provide stainless steel, concrete-in Sheffield
type cycle stands, as shown in the photo below.
Companies successful in obtaining stands must agree to the
collection, installation, maintenance and monitoring of usage.
