Two-wheel boost for #activetravel in Abingdon

Oxfordshire County Council has added a touch of Sheffield to Abingdon to encourage more people to take up #activetravel

New ‘Sheffield’ cycle stands have been installed in Bath Street, Broad Street and Stratton Way to boost the number of locations available for cyclists to lock their bikes up.

The racks have been installed by the county council with help from the town council who identified suitable locations.

County Councillor Liam Walker, Cabinet Member for highway delivery and operation, said: “We have really got some momentum up now with #activetravel work like this bringing benefits to towns and villages across the county.

“Hopefully the new stands will mean more people travel into Abingdon on two wheels.”
