Construction News Image
The rollout of Belfast Bikes locations is progressing with the installation of a new docking station at Lisnasharragh Leisure Centre.

More stations are set to be installed at Olympia Leisure Centre, Kennedy Centre and the Waterworks/Antrim Road later this month.

Funding has been provided for the scheme through the DfI Sustainable and Active Travel elements of the DfC Covid-19 Revitalisation Programme Fund.

Belfast Bikes is sponsored by Just Eat with the sponsorship deal playing an important role in further developing the success of the scheme, ensuring it is affordable for users and the ongoing promotion of cycling across the city.

The Just Eat Belfast Bikes scheme has continued to grow in popularity since its inception in 2015 and currently boasts over 400 bikes with 49 docking stations.

Councillor Ryan Murphy, Chair of Belfast City Council's City Growth & Regeneration Committee, said: "The installation of new docking stations at Lisnasharragh Leisure Centre and other locations in the city this month is great news for our residents, visitors and businesses - actively promoting cycling as a safe, healthy and environmentally sustainable form of transport.

"Since its introduction, the Belfast Bikes scheme has not only grown in size but also in popularity with rentals and users consistently increasing. It is so encouraging to see more people choosing a bike as their method of transport which clearly signifies that Belfast Bikes is an integral part of city life and in turn helps to create a better connected, low carbon, climate resilient city. I am really looking forward to Belfast Bikes continuing to achieve more success in the years to come."

The scheme is managed and operated by NSL, a Marston Holdings Company and Group.

Chief Commercial Officer Mark Hoskin said: "In partnership with Belfast City Council, we are pleased to be helping to encourage people to use a more sustainable, healthier and greener mode of transport that delivers cleaner air across the city. We are looking forward to many more years of Belfast Bikes and its continued success."
