Legacy Cycle Stands for Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games!
Falco has recently 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.
Each of the FalcoToaster racks has 5 cycle hoops enabling 10 bikes to be secured, in all a total of 950 cycle spaces! The image attached shows one of the installations outside the famous Ibrox Stadium which was used to host the Rugby Sevens competition.
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.
