FREE Cycle Parking for Community Groups and Businesses

FREE Cycle Parking for Community Groups and Businesses

Cycling charity Life Cycle UK is offering community groups and small businesses in Bristol the chance to apply for FREE cycle stands, thanks to funding from Bristol City Council.

Why install cycle parking?

  • Encourage employees and visitors to travel the healthy way by giving them safe cycle parking.
  • Increase customer footfall whilst helping to reduce road congestion and pollution.
  • Landlords can avoid bike-related wear-and-tear by installing the stands outside their properties.
  • Sheffield stands are sturdy and secure, minimising the risk of tampering and theft


Take A Stand® helps organisations with limited resources to install safe cycle parking at their premises. The stands are provided and delivered completely FREE of charge – all you have to do is install them.

Bristol-based organisations can apply for up to 4 FREE Sheffield stands each – enough to provide secure parking for 8 bikes.

Satisfied customer, Alice from Paper Plane on Gloucester Road says: “We love our new cycle stand! It subtly contributes to the sense of community in the area, encouraging fitness and helping out the environment. I applied thinking it might take weeks to sort out, but within an hour or so I had a reply. The stand was delivered the next week. Customers are now at ease, giving them more time to browse and try things on”.
