A new cycle hub – available 24/7 – has opened in #Worthing town centre.

The secure hub offers space for 34 bikes and is a joint initiative between the Council and Freedom Works, with funding from WSCC (West Sussex County Council.

Cyclists simply sign up to an annual £30 membership to get a dedicated pass giving them access to the hub, which has enhanced lighting and CCTV, at the decommissioned entrance to the High Street multi-storey car park.

Cllr Dan Humphreys (right in picture), Leader of Worthing Borough Council and Chairman of the Worthing Walking and Cycling Action Group, said:

“As a keen cyclist myself, I welcome this initiative which will have enormous benefits for the local workforce, both in securing bikes and encouraging more people to cycle to work, but also in helping to build more sustainable, affordable and healthy travel options.”

Jon Trigg, managing director of Freedom Works, which provides co-working and flexible office space in The Mill Building, Chatsworth Road, said:

“Those who use our offices often work flexible hours and want a place to safely leave their bikes at all hours. We’re really pleased that this new hub will provide that for them, and anyone else who wants to use it.”
