Cycle storage

Cycle Storage

There are a range of cycle storage facilities at our acute sites for staff to use. Bicycles should be secured using an approved lock. Any bicycles left over a period of time will be removed to ensure availability of these facilities for those who need them on a daily basis. Guidance on how to secure your bike is available here

For more information on changing and showering facilities, please contact the relevant Site Facilities department. For more information on cycling to work, including Cyclescheme, please contact [email protected]

For the sites below, we have also developed Walking and Cycling maps. These provide information on local and national cycle routes, as well as information on the location of staff changing facilities and cycle storage. These can be accessed by clicking here.
