  • Broxap cycle parking shelters do not meet standards

    Created by Matthew // 1 thread

    The Broxap 'Cambridge' Cycle Shelter (BXMW/CA/1) is intended and marketed to fit 24 cycle spaces provided by two rows of six Sheffield stands. The shelter is 5,000 mm long, which means that the spacing between Sheffield stands is only 800 mm, with 500 mm spaces on either side of the row:

    500 + 800 + 800 + 800 + 800 + 800 + 500 = 5,000

    The Cambridge Local Plan (2006) specifies that spacing between Sheffield stands should be 900 mm and newer advice suggests 1,000 mm.

    Should we write to the manufacturer and ask that they revise their design, especially if they intend to market this as a 'Cambridge' cycle shelter?

  • Ofo bike park at Addenbrookes

    Richard G // 1 thread

    Just noticed the reserved bike parking space for Ofo, just outside the main revolving doors at Addenbrookes.

    Are there many other places round Cambridge that have reserved space for Ofo?

  • Home Cycle Lockers

    Phil Wigglesworth // 1 thread

    (I never quite understood the way this works, I just want to ask a question, there's no issue)

    Does anyone have any experience of the various "Cycle Locker" type storage you can buy? I'm fed up with juggling cars and bikes, so I think it's time my bikes had a separate place to reside, and a secure locker or two would seem to fit the bill.

    Something like these:
    I'm looking at commercial-strength stuff as I doubt anything less will be secure enough.

    I'm looking for anyone who's bought them or used them, or similar. Is there anything I need to know before I order?

    Motion for Camcycle AGM 2016: Street Cycle Parking

    Providing secure places to park bicycles is a simple and effective way to encourage cycling by making people on bikes feel welcome. In some areas of Cambridge residents have got used to all the spare street space being allocated to the storage of motor vehicles and very little for bikes. The result has been badly parked bikes cluttering hallways, clinging to drainpipes and other street furniture. The experience on Thoday Street where some on-carriageway racks have been installed is a good example of how the problem can be addressed.

    Camcycle resolves to:
    1. Champion the replacement of on street car parking with cycle parking where it is clearly needed
    2. Identify streets where this should and can be achieved
    3. Work with local councillors to survey demand
    4. Where there is sufficient local support work with local councillors to prepare proposals for funding. For example, from the Local Highways Improvement fund.

    This motion was passed by 46 to one.
