On street safe, dry bicycle storage.
There are 2 big problems with cycling in Bath, the hills are steep and there is no provision for safe, dry bicycle storage in Bath. The city centre houses have no access to gardens or outdoor space for bicycles. All the Georgian houses have steps into the building and then narrow steps to basements where one might keep a bike.
Electric bikes solve the problem of the hills however they cost from £1,800 and upwards. People are unwilling to leave this valuable item on the street unprotected.
Already in London there are on street Cycle Hangars manufactured by Cyclehoop. These are pods, smaller than a hatch back car and half a parking space holds 6 bicycles. The spaces are rented out to bicycle owners. The initial cost is £5,000 but the cost is paid for by rent.
