New cycle hub opens at Meadowhall station
A new secure and dry space for cyclists to leave their bikes is now open at a busy Northern station.
The 'cycle hub’ at Meadowhall station has space for 40 bicycles including provision for adapted bike or cargo bike – and is operated by Sheffield-based business Russell’s Bicycle Shed.
There is also a maintenance stand complete with tools and a tyre pump.
The new facility is in the station's car park and costs just £5 per month to use.
To ensure maximum security there are CCTV cameras and an app enabled secure door entry system.
Kerry Peters, regional director at Northern, said: “We’re pleased to announce the opening of the new cycle hub, we feel that the opportunity for cyclists to safely park their bikes in the facility will help reduce car traffic on the roads and encourage people to cycle to our stations.”
The cycle hub was funded by the Cycle Rail Fund.
