COMMUTERS who cycle to work in the morning have benefited from 89 bike stands across Chester installed as part of the Park That Bike scheme.
A total of 28 sites including health centres, churches, community centres, scout groups, the Crowne Plaza Hotel, Telford’s Warehouse, Chester Cycle Hire and the Chester Chronicle newspaper offices have had the stands installed so far.
Cheshire West and Chester council councillor Lynn Riley, executive member for community and environment, said: “It’s great news that the Chester Chronicle has taken the opportunity to have cycle stands installed as part of the Park that Bike Scheme.
“Cycle Chester wants to work with partners and businesses to encourage their customers and colleagues to cycle regularly.
“Cycling can be good for us all in many ways and it is by working together with partners throughout the community that will help a variety of people in Chester to make cycling a regular mode of transport.”
Businesses can still apply as part of the scheme.
Up to four stands, parking for eight bikes, are available per applicant, each holds two bikes neatly and securely.
The recipient is responsible for installing them on their own premises and in a location agreed with the scheme organiser.
