Cycle Centre Ride and Park

Project Aim

To provide secure cycle parking and general cycling related assistance to those visiting the town by bike.

The Project

Middlesbrough Cycle Centre is one of two town centre parking facilities in the Tees Valley.  Located in the Bus Station in the centre of town it is a prime location for commuters and shoppers alike.  Committed to promoting cycling in Middlesbrough, it provides free secure indoor cycle parking along with showers, changing facilities and an information centre.  Shopmobility Scooter and Wheel Chair hire is also available, along with a free to use Bike Library service.  Members can leave their cycles safe and secure while they go about their business.  The Cycle Centre also delivers learn to ride sessions and accredited road safety training (National Standards and Bikeability).  The information centre provides route and touring maps, cycle guides, and other information to enable riders to access routes to work and for leisure activities throughout the Tees Valley.  Guided ride instructors are available to lead rides in and around Middlesbrough.  These can be used for something as simple as planning a cycle route into work, to leading a group on a tour of the local area and routes.  Cycle Maintenance courses are available through our Bike Academy training facility.

So why not join the ever growing band of cyclists who are members of Middlesbrough Cycle Cetnre?  Membership is FREE!  Simply pop into the centre with some form of identification, complete a membership form and access the facilities straight away.
