Cycle Routes and Parking
Cycling as a means of transport as well as for leisure has seen a great renaissance since 2005 which is reflected in the provision of national and local cycling routes and facilities. There is genuine value to your town centre in making sure that there are clearly marked cycling routes into and through the town centre from the nearest national cycling network route, as well as from train stations as the rise of the folding-bike commuter continues.
The location and quantity of cycle parking is worth attention too. Where there is a bus or train station, secure bike lockers for commuters who travel to and from the station by bike can help to encourage healthy lifestyles and reduce congestion at busy times.
