Join us on Thursday 22nd May between 7am and 10am for a Cyclists Breakfast to celebrate the opening of the new Station Cycle Solutions pop-up bike shop at Twyford train station. There’ll also be a free Dr Bike session to kickstart the new bicycle repair service that will take place every Tuesday throughout the summer.
In May 2014, Twyford station completed the expansion of its cycle parking converting all existing sheffield stands on platform 4/5 into double-tier parking funded jointly by Cycle Chilterns and First Great Western. The station now offers cycle parking for up to 100 bicycles.
First Great Western have increased their cycle parking facilities at a number of stations across their network over the last few years, as well as opening a Brompton Dock at Oxford station and will now be supporting a weekly pop-up bicycle shop at Twyford.
Station Cycle Solutions already run a similar project at Oxford station as well as a busy bicycle shop and bike hire business in Oxford. At first the pop-up shop will be available every Tuesday from 7.30 am until late offering bicycle repairs, new and used bike sales, accessories and bike hire. They then aim to increase their opening times to twice weekly and then every weekday.
So if you’re on a bike in the Twyford area on Thursday morning, swing by and pick up a hot drink and a pastry, hot croissant or hot butty – it’s not just for commuters, anybody on a bike will get a free breakfast whether on a local club run or taking a special detour on the way to work, we’ll give you a warm welcome and a hearty breakfast to start the day!
Station Cycle Solutions is supported by First Great Western, Cycle Chilterns, CTC the national cycling charity, Wokingham Borough Council, Walton Street Cycles and Bainton Bikes.
