The Downside of an Environmentally Friendly City!

Copenhagen in Denmark is a paradise for cyclists! They have 400km of cycle lanes and bridges made solely for cyclists. Amazingly, !

With all of these bikes, the main problem that stands out all over the city is where they are left. There are clearly not enough stands, which result in bikes being leant against each other to form a mass of parked bikes. These bikes cause shop entrances to be blocked, pavement spaces to be filled, which in turn cause pedestrians to have to walk on the road.

Its great to see so many cyclists in Copenhagen and we can only hope that one day England has more. For those cyclists in Cheltenham that are looking for a safe place to lock up their bikes then we can help. At Cheltenham Bikes, we have a facility where you can leave your bikes at our workshop throughout the day(during our working hours) for a small charge. This not only keeps them safe, it also keeps them dry and out of the rain!

To find out more about locking your bike up with us, please .
