Cycle parking, Dalston

Cycle parking, Dalston

Possibly the first time I’ve ever seen this – cycle parking, within a car park. Taking up around 2 car bays worth of space, you could probably squeeze up to 24 bikes in here. But I didn’t leave mine here, due to the strange people loitering and incredible quiet. Instead, I opted for the racks within Junction station: busy, among many secured bikes and covered by CCTV.

It’s a very promising sign though – more parking please!

This afternoon I popped back to the Duke of Wellington in Dalston to get some pictures…ready to blog about their Scottish beer festival.

Such is the popularity of cycling in this area, both Sheffield stands were crammed full along with every lamppost within sight!
