Two-wheeled travellers in Bicester and Caversfield will find it easier to lock up their bikes as the council emphasises its commitment to sustainable transport.
Cherwell District Council is working to make it more convenient for people to secure their bikes in the town centre and on Caversfield’s Buckingham Road with new and upgraded cycle stands.
The improvements reflect the council’s message that cycling is one of the healthiest and most environmentally friendly modes of transport. The new cycle racks will be installed between Monday, 8 and Friday, 19 May 2017.
The upgrades are taking place at a variety of locations. The old racks on Sheep Street are being replaced with 18 new Sheffield stands. These will be spaced further apart to provide greater flexibility and accommodate more cycles.
In Caversfield, new covered cycle stands will be installed alongside the bus stop Buckingham Road. This is intended to benefit people using the X5 Oxford to Cambridge bus service, as well as users of other local bus services.
Five stands are also being installed at the junction of St John’s Street and North Street.
During the installation period, cyclists are advised to use the bike stands in Pioneer Square.
