Parking Your Bike on Carnaby Street

Follow us

In these troubled times, cycling is something that we’re all being encouraged to do more of and in few places more than the city centre. The benefits are clear: we get exercise, don’t exact a toll on the environment and avoid over-proximity on public transport.

Yet frequently it is still difficult to find somewhere to leave your park if you commute to work. Central London landlord Shaftesbury has come up with a possible solution among the shops it owns on fashionable Carnaby Street. Following a unit at the southern end of the street becoming available, while it seeks a new tenant it has turned the space into an indoors bike park, ‘The Carnaby Bike Hub‘ complete with racks, trendy graphics (this is Carnaby St) and a place to ensure that the rain doesn’t tarnish your pride and joy.

It’s a simple and good use of an empty unit and a whole lot better than the usual hoardings shouting ‘let me’ that normally characterise this sort of thing.
