It looks like the existing secure cycle stand on Creyke Road will be retained now, which means another 100 secure bike parks will be able to come back on line soon.

We received some very interesting feedback in this year’s UC Travel Survey, indicating that around 40% of cyclists prefer secure cycle stands above other kinds of bike parks. The challenge we have now is to think through the various ways that we can ensure our bike parks really are secure. For instance: Is card access the best method?

We saw a campus bike park system at the University of the Sunshine Coast recently where your student card gave you access to the secure bike parking, but ONLY if you were on a register of users. What do you think about this? We’d love to hear your feedback and suggestions. You can comment on this post, or email us on
