User responses regarding the overall bike hangar trial


“I think it is a great way to encourage more people to use their bikes by having the easy access to be able to use them. I would highly encourage more of these and more bike lanes in the city with bikes having more priority like they do in the Netherlands”

“I think it is a brilliant idea and I would like to see more round the city. Ideally of course I would like me near where I live! But in general they are fantastic”

“They are very unsightly and I would be very unhappy if one had to be located outside my house. I appreciate that they may make cycling easier for some people but I doubt that they take cars off the road and in areas where parking is already difficult I don’t think this is the solution.”
