Exciting changes for cyclists

After listening to our customers we realised we are getting many cyclists either travelling along the Route 66 or Way of the Roses cycle routes. Many local cyclists are also making use of the tracks which lead to The Balloon Tree.

We have therefore just installed three new cycle racks here at The Balloon Tree. One is situated in the cafe garden where those who want to keep a keen eye on their prized possessions can do so while relaxing in the cafe.

We have another one situated in the picnic area at the front of the shop. Alongside this we have a mini one where the junior cyclists can hang up their cycles.

Please feel free to hitch up your cycle onto the racks provided.

We were also getting comments about some cyclists not wanting to carry locks due to the weight issue. To help secure your cycles we have locks available in the shop or cafe which can be borrowed on a Trust basis Free of Charge. We have a tool kit and a pump which can also be borrowed if needed.

On top of this we will be adding to the CCTV system to put cameras on all cycle parks.

If you have any more suggestions please do email us and we will try to help where we can.
