Getting it Right: Secure Cycle Hubs
Offering a cycle hub whether it is a standalone unit or contained within an existing building, is the most secure and practical method of housing a large number of cycles.
Cycle hubs allow the user freedom to park their cycle in a facility where they can ensure their cycle is housed within a secure environment that is accessed only by recognised security methods. CCTV may also be present as well as bright lighting.
Secure cycle hubs can be accessed by:
- Swipe card (Figure 1)
- Electronic key fob (Figure 2)
- Coded lock (Figure 3)
Facilities : Users of a cycle hub may also benefit from:
- Cycle lockers
- Changing seats/benches
- Showering facilities
- Pump and repair station for users to service or make running repairs to their cycle
