City Council launches bargain bike storage offer

Edinburgh residents have the opportunity to buy bike racks and other storage equipment at reduced cost from the City Council if ordered by January 17th.

The equipment can be ordered for tenements or other residential locations and will be installed by mid-February. The move is part of the Council’s Active Travel action plan to increase bike ownership and use in the city.Delivery charges will be shared, significantly reducing costs.

Those interested should make sure they select equipment which meets relevant security and convenience needs. Residents are being encouraged to talk to neighbours, landlords and other relevant persons, especially if there is a common stairwell, garden or back-green.

More information on the types of product available and rough costs are available on the Spokes website. This also gives information on what to do next if you are interested in the offer. Some ideas that flat dwellers have already implemented to improve their bike storage can be found in this Spokes fact-sheet.

The offer only applies to Edinburgh City Council residents.
