Golden Legacy for Falco Commonwealth Cycle Stands
Since the closing ceremony of the Glasgow 2014 games, Sustrans Scotland, Cycling Scotland and Transport Scotland joined forces to give workplaces across Scotland a chance to bid for and “own a piece of the Commonwealth Games”. Each organisation could bid for up to three of the innovative legacy cycle racks to help boost their cycle facilities for employees and students and encourage the activity of cycling to work.
In an innovative approach to commemorate the winning medallists in a sporty way, a series of the legacy cycle racks have been powder coated in gold, silver and bronze to represent each medal won! These are being donated to the respective home towns and villages of the winning medallists and will remain as a long term tribute to each of the successful athletes.
The images attached commemorate Darren Burnett's gold medal in the Lawn Bowls Men's Singles and Viorel Etko's bronze medal in the Men's Wrestling Freestyle 61kg event.
All 220 of the Legacy cycle racks were manufactured by Falco providing over 2,000 additional cycle parking spaces throughout Scotland. Initially used as temporary cycle parking for the Commonwealth Games, the racks will now be used to commemorate the successes of the 78 Scottish medal winners for many years to come. Hopefully there’ll be one near you!
The legacy cycle racks are based on our popular FalcoToaster and manufactured from galvanised steel with laser cut side panels outlining the legacy 2014 logo and powder coated in gold, silver or bronze.
