There are a number of places to park your bike in south Essex, such as the secure cycle parking found at Rayleigh, Billericay, Laindon, Benfleet and Pitsea train stations.
To keep your bike secure, you need a good lock. Sold Secure (an affiliate of Master Locksmiths Association) provides a useful rating system – Bronze, Silver and Gold – that is based on how long it takes to break the lock. You can use the site to search for and compare locks.
It is worth considering how much you are prepared to spend on a bike lock. It is often said that people should spend 10% of the cost of their bike on the lock, but one lock can often be insufficient for preventing theft. Either two U locks or one U lock with an extender cable is recommended.
Free bike parking stands are available for businesses or organisations with staff or members who cycle. Up to four cycle stands can be applied for, free of charge, with different types to choose from depending on your needs and preferences.
- Safe bike parking stands reduce the risk of theft or damage so can help encourage employees, visitors or customers to cycle as they know their bike will be secure.
- Good quality bike parking shows that your business or organisation is doing its bit to encourage cycling.
To receive these benefits, your business or organisation must be based in Basildon, Castle Point, Rochford, Southend or Thurrock and have staff, visitors or customers who travel there by bike. To request an application form or to find out more, visit www.parkthatbike.info or call 01594 564 344.
