Brighton Cycle Hub is Cyclepods’ biggest and possibly proudest achievement to date. With a huge 500 space storage facility, security lighting and state of the art entry and exit access technology all provided by us, it is a fantastic addition to Brighton station and the town’s cycling community.
Officially opened on 26th March 2015 by Baroness Kramer, this cycle hub will prove itself to be a priceless asset to the station with the building itself being a multi-use communal area! It’s a project we are very proud to have been involved in.
We developed the bike storage and access technology for the hub, all of which was designed to Southern Rail’s specific needs. The entire ground floor of the Cycle Hub full of Cyclepods’ Easylift+ Two-Tier storage. Our Two-Tier was the ideal product for this kind of project due to the need to be as space efficient as possible.
The bespoke entry and exit system Cyclepods created for this 500 space hub features a swipe card system linked to Southern Rail’s ‘The Key’ card. This one card provides access for commuters to the bike hub and doubles up as their travel card! Cyclepods designed the gate based on the exact needs for Brighton and the design can easily be adapted for use in any hub and in any location.
