Falco Provides 2,000 Cycle Parking Spaces for Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games
Falco was delighted to partner with the event organisers to provide secure cycle parking spaces to the Birmingham 2022 Commonwealth Games. The contract oversaw the manufacture, supply, installation and re-distribution of over 2,000 cycle parking spaces to 25 different locations - which make up this year’s quadrennial multi-sport event.
Falco’s delivery and installation vehicles overcame the logistical challenges required in order to ensure all operating venues throughout the West Midlands had ample cycle parking for spectators to use, throughout each of the 11 days of the international event.
Flagship venues as part of the contract included the Alexander Stadium, Sandwell Aquatics Centre, Victoria Park, Coventry Arena, Coventry Stadium, Cannock Chase Forest, Sutton Park, Phoenix Park, West Park and Edgbaston Cricket Ground.
The temporary cycle parking infrastructure was made up of the traditional Toaster cycle rack and the A-Frame cycle rack, providing mass and portable cycle parking, capable of being erected and dismantled quickly between events.
Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games
In addition to Birmingham 2022, Falco teamed up with four of Scotland’s sports and cycling organisations, to provide a series of bespoke cycle parking racks for the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
Falco designed, manufactured and installed the 95 bespoke ‘Toaster’ style cycle racks as temporary cycle parking for spectators to use throughout the games. Each rack featured an end panel to incorporate the logos of; Glasgow Commonwealth Games Legacy 2014, Transport Scotland, Sustrans and Cycling Scotland. The racks were installed at over 20 of the key sporting locations of the games including the Commonwealth Sports Arena, Hampden Park, Celtic Park, Ibrox Stadium, Scottish Exhibition Centre and the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome to name a few.
Temporary Cycle Parking
In addition to the long-lasting cycle parking equipment provided by Falco, an array of temporary cycle parking facilities is also available. Temporary cycle parking (also referred to as pop-up cycle parking) is a cost-effective solution for locations where cycle parking is required on a temporary basis. Applications may include festivals, markets, concerts, fairs, exhibitions, sports events or simply where permanent cycle parking provision is yet to be decided.
