Would you like to know a little bit more about cycle racks?
Are you thinking of having one installed but have a few questions before you go ahead with the new project?
This article is here to help you with those issues so read on to find out more.
Cycle racks are becoming popular especially in schools because they teach children about being responsible for their bikes by storing them correctly and safely instead of leaning them up against a fence or a tree!
They are a very practical and worthwhile idea to have because then the children and even some parents have a designated place to store their bikes while at school and then they know that when they are finished, they will come out to their bikes that are undamaged.
2% of children are currently known to ride to school and this needs to rise to increase their health and become a fitter nation.
Cycling to school not only increases health but also decreases the amount of traffic on the roads in the morning and this in turn makes for a safer environment for everyone.
So what are cycle racks and what are they made of?
Well, they are made from a steel construction and can be galvanised and powder coated in various colours to suit your school’s theme.
They come in so many different designs these days that you are bound to find one that will look great at your school or work place.
You can get them supplied and fitted on the wall or fixed to the ground. All that’s needed is a solid surface for the installation.
Some companies are also supplying more fun looking designs such as the flower shape which is great for the younger children to enjoy.
