At Cycle-Works, we believe that the future for many sites is electronic access, as it overcomes many of the issues with traditional cycle parking. There are various options available.

Secure rooms

These are simply access controlled rooms, with either stand-alone IT systems  or linked into an existing access system, e.g. university or hospital access system. Secure rooms can also be linked to various existing payment and identification mechanisms, e.g. a site access system.

Electronic control of individual lockers

For this option, the user is identified electronically, and is allowed access to a particular locker, for example a Velo-Safe or Velo-Box locker. The user can be charged to use the locker, or it can just be done as a method of control/allocation.

These can be stand-alone IT systems or linked into an existing access system, e.g. a university or hospital access system. They can also be linked to various payment and identification mechanisms.

Most systems require users to sign up for a particular scheme, giving personal details and either bank or credit card details as security and identification. Some systems allow the users to look at availability of spaces online, and even book places, while others use mobile phone technology.

Digital control of individual lockers

Lockers can also be controlled with the use of a digital lock. The user can be charged to use the locker, or it can just be done as a method of control/allocation

Cycle-Works and our partners are working on innovative developments – please contact us for details!

Electronic or digital control of a multi-bike store or shelter

This is where a user is identified, and is allowed access to a particular multi-bike store or shelter. The user can be charged to use the bike store, or it can just be done as a method of control/allocation.

Electronic control of individual racks

For this option, a user is identified electronically and allowed access to a particular rack. The user can be charged to use the rack, or it can just be done as a method of control/allocation.
