“Crowngate Shopping Centre are pleased to introduce a new secure cycle storage pop up to assist with the safety of cycles within Worcester City Centre. There has been an increase in the use of cycles in the city due to the impact of COVID-19 and we also understand that by walking or cycling wherever possible, this also helps reduce carbon and impacts positively on sustainability. The secure cycle storage unit is a community hub for cyclists to share information about local cycle clubs, cycle groups, local cycle routes and information.”
While speaking to Worcester News, Crowngate’s centre manager Michael Lloyd mentioned the exciting new project: “cyclists can park their bike in a warm, dry safe place whilst having it monitored by CCTV. We also have a dedicated repair station so you can pump up your tyre or tighten your handle bars.”
To celebrate the opening, Crowngate have launched a competition for children to design the ‘Bike of the Future’, and one lucky child will win bikes for their family to the value of £1000 and three cycle helmets!
You’ll need to be quick however, the competition ends on 4th May!
