Bike pods encourage customers and staff to cycle to NSC

Customers and staff have greater encouragement to cycle to the National Sports Centre (NSC) as secure bike pods are now available for their use.

There are 14 lockable pods – 10 outside the main entrance in Groves Road and four near the outdoor changing rooms.

Cyclists using them will pay a fully returnable deposit of £10 at the NSC counter and obtain a key to the pod.

Carl Glover, General Manager of the NSC, said: ‘The Programme for Government promises initiatives that encourage people to cycle to work and for leisure.

‘Our Strategy for Sport aims to get more people, more active more often and at the NSC we run Bike 4 Life to encourage people to take up or resume cycling.

‘The presence of the pods will hopefully encourage customers and staff to cycle to the NSC and safely secure their bikes.’
