Warehouse conversion starts for Derby one stop bike shop

Work has started on a major project in Derby, which it is hoped will encourage more people to get on their bike in and around the city,

The Park Bikeworks will see the transformation of an old warehouse. The flooring, being strong and resilient, will allow a full shop and repair service to be offered at the facility.

The likely use of  steel partitioning  steel partitioning will also split up the space to offer even more vital services for Derbyshire cyclists.

Secure racking for 150 bikes and personal lockers will be offered for example, as well as a cafe serving up those all important refreshments. There will also be shower facilities at the old Bennetts warehouse, making it attractive for many city workers.

Located at Full Street in the heart of the city, it is hoped the project will be a veritable revolution. In particular, it is hoped the scheme will drive down the instances of bike crime.

The project is a joint initiative between Bennetts, Derby City Council and Derby Enterprise Growth Fund. Simon Ingham, the boss of Bennetts said it was:

“…really aimed at bike users within the city of Derby. It is about including everyone.”

There is also backing and support from the Local Sustainable Transport Fund.

The total cost of the project has not yet been made clear. However, it is known that a £200,000 cash injection for the scheme has been given by the council.

The riverside project which has spent two years in the planning is expected to come online in the summer of this year.
