Why this Product is so Good
The inspiration for this rack came from commuting in the home town of Cycle-Works – the cathedral city of Winchester.
The rack mirrors gothic arches and windows and is therefore the ideal solution for sites where the natural beauty of the surroundings is to be complemented.
In addition to its good looks, the rack also holds the bike well. The top of the rack is between the saddle and front stem which keeps the bike stable. Mountain bikes and smaller children’s bikes in particular benefit from the additional locking points.
The user is encouraged to lock the bicycle frame and front wheel to the rack.
This cycle rack can be used to help demonstrate compliance with BREEAM and achieve a high BREEAM rating.*
This cycle rack can be used to help contribute towards gaining your 2 ENE8 Cycle Storage Credits when used in an appropriate situation, under the Code for Sustainable Homes.

Layout & Space Requirements
Racks should be spaced so that users can access their bikes easily, which is usually between 800mm and 1000mm apart.
Each rack parks two bicycles – one on each side.
- 600mm wide
- 950mm high
- Tubing outside diameter 48mm
Racks can be embedded into concrete to a depth of 300mm.
Surface mounted racks are bolted to good quality concrete with 100mm x m10 or m12 bolts, with 4 bolts to each leg.
Toast racks are supplied welded to rails in multiples of 2 or 3 hoops and are bolted to the ground through the rails with 110mm x m12 bolts. Rows can be as long as required.
Materials, Locking Mechanisms & Accessories
Galvanised and powder coated finish – An excellent long-lasting finish that is less damaging to the bike’s paintwork. Powder coating is available in most RAL colours.
Galvanised mild steel – ‘Industrial’ looking, but effective protection for 10-15 years.
304 Stainless steel – A non-rusting material that suits modern surroundings. ‘Marine Grade’ 316 stainless steel is also available.
Locking Mechanisms & Options
The security bar allows the cyclist to lock the bike frame and wheels with their own chain or D-lock.
This rack provides many locking points for a bike.
However, the racks are only as good as the user’s lock. The bikes are visible to potential thieves and vandals, and they are open to the elements (unless under a shelter). Accessories, wheels and saddles can be stolen from them.
Please see our product range for more long-term secure bicycle parking.
Damage to bikes
Like all similar racks, the bike just rests against the rack and the opposite bike. We recommend powder coating as this offers some protection for the bike’s paintwork.
