UC Cycle Stand Update

bikes in rowGood news for Engineering students (and others)! It looks like the existing secure cycle stand on Creyke Road will be retained, which means another 100 secure bike parks will come back on line soon.

UC’s Sustainability Office received very interesting feedback in this year’s UC Travel Survey, indicating that around 40% of cyclists prefer secure cycle stands over other kinds of bike parks. The challenge we have now is to think through the various ways that we can ensure our bike parks really are secure. For instance: Is card access the best method?

We recently saw a campus bike park system at the University of the Sunshine Coast where a staff or student card gave cyclists access to the secure bike parking, but only if they were on a register of users.

What do you think about this?
