Our Minipods and Scooterpods are designed for children, and to specifically help motivate cycling, and scooting, in the early years. More than 70,000 children now park their bikes and scooters in our products every day.
Our award-winning two-tier system, Easylift Premium, together with our Spacepod, offer huge improvements in space efficiency, while the Streetpod focusses on high security, and has been recommended by the UK Police Secured by Design programme. These strategic products are supported by a wide-range of other options, both innovative and traditional, designed to suit all budgets. And, of course, they are all available with a comprehensive range of shelters and canopies.
We, at Cyclepods, have been very conscious of the drive to return cycling as a viable form of transport. We are also aware that the pent-up enthusiasm among people to take to the road on bikes is being held back by road safety issues (the no.1 issue) and concerns about bike security and safety (the no.2 issue). While we at Cyclepods can’t do much about the first issue, our mission is to resolve the latter. Therefore we challenged our design team to come up with a range of cycling-focussed cycle hubs. However, their remit was not simply to create a compound or building which could accommodate bikes; the designs had to be cyclist-specific and cost effective.
We were aware that, unlike car parking, cycle parking cannot be profitable, so cost was a key factor. We now have a range of hubs, with unique facilities for cyclists; including specialist access control, CCTV, and LED lighting systems which are available at a very affordable budget. Service is key to this range of activity. Our design team offers a bespoke-design service, as well as being able to customise our range of modular options.
We provide planning, and stakeholder, support, and our installation team will handle full installation, often including preparatory groundworks as well. Although hubs are a fairly new concept, we have already installed 8 hubs for SWT as well as hubs at Heathrow Airport and Leyton Underground, and at railway stations at Brighton, Lewes, Horsham, Dorking, and Hove, with plenty more in progress.
So, whether you are looking for a better way to secure your family’s bikes at home, or you are an organisation needing a super-hub, and all points in-between, Cyclepods would like to hear from you and offer our services.
