A free parking facility in Middlesbrough town centre is growing in popularity.
More than 40 people a day are taking advantage of Middlesbrough Cycle Centre’s free parking for cyclists in the town centre and the numbers are continuing to grow.
The facilities are available to every cyclist and there is no charge.
The facilities include a free bike rack to lock your bike up safely while you shop around the town as well as showers for cyclists and lockers to lock biking gear in.
In addition to this the centre also offers expert advice on bikes and how to maintain them.
With around 40-50 people a day taking advantage of this opportunity the popularity is growing.
The centre is expecting to have at least 70 people on their books by the end of the year.
Mike O’Reilly, Cycle Centre co-ordinator, said: “With biking becoming more popular throughout Middlesbrough we wanted to make free cycle parking more available and let people know the service we offer.”
To become a member of the scheme fill out a membership form at the Cycle Centre at Middlesbrough Bus Station.
The Cycle Centre is open from 8am to 6pm on weekdays, 9am to 5pm on Saturdays and is closed on a Sunday.
