Meadowhall Shipping Centre have launched new cycle hubs and promotions for National Bike Week.
Meadowhall Launches Cycle Hubs
New cycle hubs have been installed around Meadowhall aiming to encourage active travel to and from the Shopping Centre.
Offering more than 120 secure spaces, the hubs also feature six e-bike charging points, two bike repair and pump stations and lockers to store helmets. Additionally the structures feature an environmentally friendly design complete with a sedum roof to provide food for butterflies, bees and birds.
Located by the Oasis Dining Quarter and Argos entrances the cycle hubs were part funded by Sheffield City Region.
“We all know cycling is a great way to get around and keep fit, and it’s also a good choice for our environment. We’re committed to helping to support a sustainable future for Yorkshire, and helping our visitors choose a greener form of transport to get to us is one way of doing this.”Darren Pearce, Centre Director of Meadowhall
Meadowhall Giveaways for National Bike Week
To mark the new cycle hubs Meadowhall is also celebrating National Bike Week.
The destination shopping centre has teamed up with the Make South Yorkshire Roads Safer campaign to offer a number of giveaways for cyclists.
From 30 May to 5th June visitors can pick up some free cycling gear including gloves, helmet covers, neck warmers and bag covers.
Visitors to Meadowhall can pick up their items from the Management Suite located by the Oasis Dining Quarter. Stock is limited and available on a first-come-first-served basis.
How to get to Meadowhall Shopping Centre
Meadowhall Shopping Centre is located in the North East of Sheffield, just three miles from the City Centre and located close to the M1 Motorway (Junction 34).
Meadowhall Shopping Centre has its own Train, Tram (Yellow Tram) and Bus interchange (Meadowhall Interchange) with many services stopping just a short walk from the centre.
Meanwhile, the centre offers thousands of parking spaces along with electric vehicle charging points.
“In recent years we’ve invested in both the space we have for cyclists through our new racks and hub, as well as the installation of our electrical vehicle charging points in our car parks.”Darren Pearce, Centre Director of Meadowhall
