為鼓勵在Stapleford騎自行車,設立了免費自行車維修服務

該中心是Stapleford's Safer Cycling Scheme的一部分,是通過2100萬英鎊的Stapleford Towns Fund資助的六個項目之一。

參觀者將能夠得到來自諾丁漢慈善機構RideWise的機械師的幫助,該機構幫助人們通過步行、騎自行車和更綠色的交通方式出行。

RideWise的首席執行官Helen Hemstock說。"我們都對Stapleford的這個新的自行車中心的開放感到非常興奮,我們希望這將幫助人們把他們的自行車從棚子裡拿出來,並使其適合在路上使用。

"我們訓練有素的機械師和志願者每周末都會在現場提供免費支持,讓人們以更環保、更便宜和更健康的方式出行。

Stapleford城鎮基金委員會主席Ian Jowett說。"由於目前的生活成本如此之高,每一分錢都很重要。

"我們真的很高興能夠為當地人提供這些免費服務,鼓勵他們重新騎上自行車,甚至第一次開始騎自行車"。

除了自行車中心,"安全騎行計劃 "還將在Stapleford周圍開闢3公里(1.8英里)的新自行車路線,以及在Ilkeston路休閒場地的自行車訓練設施。


The hub is part of the Stapleford's Safer Cycling Scheme, one of six projects funded through the £21m Stapleford Towns Fund.

Visitors will be able to get help from a mechanic from Nottingham-based charity RideWise, which helps people to get around through walking, cycling and greener forms of transport.

Helen Hemstock, RideWise chief executive, said: "We're all really excited about the opening of this new Cycle Hub in Stapleford, which we hope will help people to get their bikes out of the sheds and made roadworthy.

"Our trained mechanics and volunteers will be on hand every weekend to offer free support to get people moving around in ways that are greener, cheaper and healthier."

Ian Jowett, chair of Stapleford Towns Fund Board, said: "With the cost of living so high at the moment, every penny counts.

"We're really excited to be able to offer these free services to local people and encourage them to get back on their bikes, or even start cycling for the first time."

In addition to the cycle hub, the Safer Cycling Scheme will also see the opening of 3km (1.8 miles) of new cycle routes around Stapleford, plus a cycle training facility on the Ilkeston Road Recreation Ground.
