How many bikes can you fit in a car? Cyclehoop Car Bike Ports on display at the Cycle Show 2010.
Cyclehoop attended the Cycle Show at Earl’s Court last year, the company’s biggest involvement yet in the event. Inside saw exhibition stands for both Cyclehoop and sister company I Bike London. Cyclehoop’s popular Car Bike Ports, which were on display elsewhere in the hall, also attracted a lot of interest. Outside, Cyclehoop provided secure temporary bike parking for exhibition-goers.
This Cycle Show took place on 7th – 10th October 2010 and according to the organisers was one of the most successful years yet, attended by over 22,000 cyclists and 207 exhibitors.
Cycle Show organisers Upper Street Events Ltd asked Cyclehoop to propose an idea for temporary bike parking for the Show. In response, the Cyclehoop team took over the car park at Earl’s Court; designing, organising and assembling 352 free bike parking spaces. The design, consisting of 84 barrier railings clamped onto 12 scaffold poles, was hailed a success with zero reported thefts!
Inside the exhibition the Cyclehoop stand featured examples of signpost and lamppost mounted Cyclehoops as well as a Car Bike Port and Sheffield Stands. As ever the stand attracted a lot of interest from cyclists, trade, journalists and local government representatives, not to mention fellow exhibitors.
