In January we applied for a City Council grant to purchase portable cycle-parking stands , for use at public events. The proposal is a partnership. If successful, the City Council will provide the storage space, while Cambridge Cycling Campaign will help staff the stands at some larger events, and monitor their usage.
We have previously mentioned the Grand Arcade plans for the city centre and the inadequate quantity of cycle parking proposed. We heard recently that the developers are now revising the plans, to provide space for many more bikes, and possibly including a cycle shop. This is great news, and we will be keen to see, and comment on, these new plans at the earliest opportunity.
And, finally, thank you to Sainsbury’s for providing the seven new Sheffield stands in front of their city centre store.
