Bike storage

In respect of our bike racks:

You are welcome to use the racks in the Bike Area to store your bike in the space if:

  • You are hacking in the space and using the space.
  • You want a safe place to leave your bike if you want to walk into town to shop/go to the cinema etc for a short period of time (ie, a morning or an afternoon).

You should not be using the bike racks:

  • For storing a bike for more than a day.
  • As storage for a project you’re working on.
  • Whilst you go to work every day (Nottingham City Council operate Citycard Cycle Hubs for this purpose).
