Secure Cycle Storage at Crowngate
Crowngate Shopping Centre are pleased to introduce a new secure cycle storage pop up to assist with the safety of cycles within Worcester City Centre. There has been an increase in the use of cycles in the city due to the impact of COVID-19 and we also understand that by walking or cycling wherever possible, this also helps reduce carbon and impacts positively on sustainability. The secure cycle storage unit is a community hub for cyclists to share information about local cycle clubs, cycle groups, local cycle routes and information.
In 2020, 350 bicycle thefts were recorded in South Worcestershire, which saw an increase of 83.2% on the previous year. The majority of these offences took place within the City of Worcester in particular. Introducing a secure cycle storage hub will support our local business and provide a community group support within our city.
Inside the storage unit there are 10 standard Sheffield Cycle Stands (will accommodate 20 bikes), 1 Toast Rack for larger bikes (will accommodate 5 bikes), Electric power Points for EBikes, a Self-Service Cycle Repair Station with tools and pump, a Bench, a Mirror and 2 hand sanitising stations. The secure cycle storage is CCTV Security monitored and accessible 24/7.
