Welcome News for Australian Cyclists

Richard Mathews -

Welcome to this special edition newsletter which for the first time in over 10 years is devoted to a single LEDA product line. The main reason is to herald and publicise a major expansion of our >Bicycle Parking Products and the release of an extensive range of new End of Journey Facilities”. Leda’s continued and expanded involvement is designed to assist in promoting cycling as an alternative mode of transport in Australia.

Across the country there is also an emerging awareness that corporations and government utilities have a responsibility as well.

The main reasons we should be encouraging Australians of all ages to cycle more, whether for recreation or as a means of getting to and from work;

Fitness - Cycling is a healthy form of exercise.

Environmental - it reduces motor vehicle use and therefore CO2 emissions.

Traffic – helps reduce traffic congestion

While various levels of Government have provided the infrastructure in installing cycleways and corridors  to assist cyclists in reaching their destination safely, the biggest deterrent that still exists for cyclists riding to work is the lack of “Secure parking” for their bicycles and/or “End of journey Facilities” (change rooms,  showers, clothes lockers) when riders get to their destination.

Leda has spent the last two years consulting with Cycle groups, state and local Governments and other interested parties across Australia to determine changing industry needs and to design and develop a range of suitable end of journey products to address these problems.

Solutions for all your bike parking needs.

No matter what your type of cycling, Securabike aims to provide practical and easy to use bike parking equipment for your arrival at any location. While commercial bicycle parking solutions are a specialty, Securabike also offer domestic racks for your home or garage, temporary racks for sales or hire and even scooter racks for schools. Commercial bicycle parking products include bike racks, bike rails, bicycle cages, bicycle lockers, bicycle shelters, end of journey facilities and accessories such as bicycle repair stations, bicycle signage and clothes lockers.

For over 18 years Securabike has provided cyclists and clients catering for cyclists such as property managers, the largest range of bike parking options available. Cycling has exploded in use in Australia and not all purchasers of bike parking equipment for commercial projects are regular cyclists. Here at Securabike we have tried to make life easy for specifiers such as architects and construction companies often responsible for installing such equipment in projects. Property managers are also regular customers that need to manage and maintain bicycle parking. To this end, our Securabike website and Bicycle Parking Handbook (comprehensive 121 page guide) explains to the A to Z of bike parking requirements including:

  • Security options for cyclists
  • Spacing of parking equipment and bicycles
  • Aisle widths for transit of bikes and pedestrians
  • Vertical bike or horizontal bike storage options
  • Individual or shared cycle parking equipment
  • Double story bicycle racks to maximise space
  • Scooter and skateboard storage (new)

Design is our strength and we can assist bicycle parking projects on layout and spacing options from one to bike to hundreds. This is provided for commercial projects where space is a premium and bicycle parking demand is strong. Securabike often see bike parking facilities over subscribed and the challenge arises on how to fit in as many bicycles as possible, while still providing functional access and usable bike parking equipment. Contact our offices for further assistance on your project and product drawings are also downloadable for specifiers doing their own layouts.
