With the growing popularity of cycling, bike storage has become a big issue for workplaces as well as for cyclists themselves. The Cycle to Work scheme has proven extremely popular since it’s inception in 2009 (see the complete details of the Cycle to Work scheme on the Revenues website: http://www.revenue.ie/en/tax/it/leaflets/benefit-in-kind/faqs/cycle-work.html). Often costing hundreds or indeed thousands of Euro bicycle owners are aware they need to have robust bike storage solution. And in order to encourage their staff to cycle to work employers also need to provide a safe, secure and dry range of bicycle storage options.
What’s the best bike rack for your workplace?
Our most popular bike rack is the Low profile bike rack. This modular system offers you the versatility of being able to add extra heads as required, and it’s hi-low head arrangement avoids the clash of handlebars. The rack is conveniently flat-packed for fast self-assembly and provides a cost-effective yet high quality solution for bike storage that will be appreciated by your staff.
There’s also the option to receive a fully assembled and welded version rack in the form of the XL4 bike rack which offers an increased level of security.
For cyclists who prefer to store their bikes on a bike stand rather than a bike rack the traditional Sheffield bike stand is the perfect solution. The galvanised and “U” shaped rake is available in both concrete-in and bolt-down versions. We also recently added a new and ultra-stylish version of the Sheffield stand in stainless steel which is in stock and available for fast delivery.
