The UK’s Largest Cycle Hub at Cambridge Station Officially Opens to the Public Incorporating 3,000 Falco Cycle Parking Spaces!
The UK’s largest cycle hub at Cambridge Station officially opened to commuters on the 27th June providing up to 3,000 spaces of FalcoLevel Premium two-tier cycle parking spaces over three separate floors. The £2.5m development triples the amount of cycle parking spaces available and is open 24 hours a day and is free of charge to use.
Cambridge CyclePoint is the largest cycle hub in the UK incorporating 3,000 cycle parking spaces - that’s three times bigger than the previous largest cycle hub at Chelmsford station! Spread out over three floors, Cambridge CyclePoint marks a milestone for cyclists and pedestrians who commute within the city.
The UK’s most prestigious CyclePoint is fitted out with the latest FalcoLevel Premium+ two tier cycle racks. Developed to the latest Dutch cycle parking standard ‘FietsParKeur’, these additionally incorporate an integral gas strut to enable easier lifting of heavier bikes as well as additional locking points so that cyclists have multiple security points for their bikes. Based on three floors there is a mix of largely two tier as well as Sheffield cycle stands to provide more traditional cycle parking where people are unable to use the two tier racks. There is also secure cycle parking for cargo bikes regardless of shape or size.
Pictured below is Falco’s Managing Director, Jeremy Green, with the former Transport Minister, Robert Goodwill. Robert commented “The superb new CyclePoint here in Cambridge will undoubtedly help get people out of their cars and make cycling the natural choice for short journeys, improving health, air quality and cutting congestion. The number of people cycling to catch trains has increased by 40 per cent since 2010, so secure cycle spaces at rail stations are critical. We have provided £29m to improve facilities at hundreds of railway stations across England since 2012 and will continue investing in dedicated routes and better infrastructure to make cycling safer and easier for people across the country”.
Jeremy Green commented “Cambridge is the UK’s number 1 cycling city and Cambridge station is the busiest cycle hub in the country, we are absolutely delighted to have delivered this unique project”.
