Cycle Parking for Organisations
Applications have now closed - October 2020
As part of our Big Summer of Cycling & Walking campaign we are working with Park That Bike to introduce our Cycle Parking for Organisations scheme. This will help organisations adapt to the increase in the cycling uptake across the region by offering to deliver FREE, safe and secure cycle parking at their place of work or school.
Organisations of all types - whether within public services, education, health establishments, community and volunteering or construction - are encouraged to make the most of this scheme. Not only will this help to support and encourage people cycling now, but it will also help your organisation to accommodate to the new wave of cycling up-take in years to come.
How it works:
NOTE: Organisations are responsible for installing their own cycle parking. The team at Park That Bike are here to help you with everything you need to make this process easy.
Step 1. Submit an application. Each organisation will be able to choose the type of cycle parking they think will suit their needs best. The cycling racks that are available to choose from include:
- conventional bike racks
- heart-shaped stands
- wall-mounted rails
- PlantLocks (a combined planter and bike rack)
- free-standing “toast-racks”

Step 2. Experts at Park That Bike will be on hand to support with the best location for the parking, while ensuring it is delivered on private land.
Step 3. Once that is approved, Park That Bike will send out the cycle parking.
Step 4. Successful applicants will then have 10 weeks to install the new parking.
*Please note: Organisations can only apply if their postcode is in one of the seven constituent Local Authority areas of Birmingham, Coventry, Dudley, Sandwell, Solihull, Walsall or Wolverhampton.
The scheme has been introduced to support the mass of people who have taken to bikes since lockdown. Cycling to work has numerous benefits: it can have a big impact on both the physical and mental wellbeing of staff and can help to decrease traffic congestion and air pollution in your local area.
