Last chance for Bristol & BANES businesses to claim FREE cycle parking

Published on .

Cycling charity Life Cycle UK is offering small businesses, community groups and landlords in Bristol and Bath/North East Somerset areas the chance to apply for FREE cycle parking stands to install on their premises, thanks to funding from Bristol City Council and BANES Council.

Providing bicycle parking for customers boosts traffic to the location whilst helping to ease congestion – enabling businesses and organisations to promote their green credentials. Sheffield stands are sturdy and secure, minimising the risk of tampering and theft.

This scheme, known as Take A Stand®, helps small organisations with limited resources to install safe cycle parking at their premises. The stands are provided and delivered completely FREE of charge – all the recipient has to do is install them.

Bristol-based organisations can apply for up to 4 FREE Sheffield stands each – enough to provide secure parking for 8 bikes.

Scheme administrator Frances McMillan, says:

“Take A Stand® is a simple, free and hassle free way for small organisations to offer secure cycle parking. But we can’t guarantee availability beyond the end of this financial year – so any local organisations who are interested need to get in touch NOW!”.
