Two major Cycle Hubs have just been installed by Cyclehoop at Enfield Town and Edmonton Green Rail Station as part of the award-winning Cycle Enfield scheme.
The Cycle Hubs, the first of their kind in Enfield will be ready for members of the public to use from mid-September and are designed to be used by commuters and visitors to shops and nearby amenities. They will also enable people to park their bikes at the transport hubs, before using trains to get into central London or further afield.
Both Cycle Hubs are steel and glass structures with CCTV and provide cycle parking for 50 bikes and three accessible cycles. They can be accessed 24 hours a day, seven days a week by using an access card. Members will also be able to make use of a bike pump and repair stand so that they can make quick repairs and keep their tyres pumped whilst on the go.
Enfield Council’s Deputy Leader, Cllr Daniel Anderson, said:
“If we want to encourage more people to get on their bikes and change their transport habits we need to provide, proper secure parking for cycles.
“We hope these hubs will encourage people to get on their bikes to visit our town centres and reap all the benefits leaving the car behind will deliver.
“We are determined to encourage as many people as possible to use sustainable transport as we possibly can and these hubs will play an important role in help us achieve that aim.”
Enfield Council’s Cycle Enfield Scheme aims to regenerate and improve town centres, dramatically improve transport links and encourage more people to use sustainable methods of transport in the borough.
Cyclehoop will manage the membership of both Cycle Hubs on behalf of Enfield Council. There will be an introductory membership fee for the first year of £25 and members will have access to both hubs.
