Cycle storage at the market car park
The Market car park in Chester has a dedicated secure Cycle Hub with space for 50 cycles, free e-bike charging and a tool station. Anyone wishing to use the Cycle Hub can pay a one-off £10 fee for an access card, available from the car park office within the New Market Parking to the right of the entrance.
Located with the New Market Parking on Hunter Street, Chester, CH1 2AR, on the entrance level.
The first 30 free access cards will be available from 2pm - 5pm on Thursday 15 December 2022, or any day onwards after 2pm on a first come basis, one access card application per person, please bring proof of identification.
Available from the car park office within the New Market Parking to the right of the entrance.
Anyone wishing to use the Cycle Hub can pay a one-off £10 fee for an access card, available from the car park office within the New Market Parking to the right of the entrance any time after 2pm. To buy an access card please bring proof of identification and card payments only will be accepted.
No, only one access card per user will be allocated - whether free or paid for.
No, more access cards will be made available than there are Cycle Hub spaces so a card will not guarantee a cycle parking space at busy times.
The Cycle Hub will be open daily from 6.30am to 11.30pm and includes CCTV, security and access controls and the following facilities:
- 56 cycle racks
- 20 spaces for scooter parking
- One cycle repair station with pump, allen keys, tools and elevated stand
- Three accessible cycle parking hoops
- Seven free electric cycle charging points with three pin plugs
A £10 charge will apply for replacing lost, damaged or stolen cards.
Admission to the Cycle Hub is limited only to users in possession of a valid access card. Please use your card on the contactless senor on the unit to the right of the entrance, not the ticket slot. Users who suffer from arm and/or back injuries should not use the two-tier cycle racks.
Although CCTV is in operation for security and safety; parking and charging is entirely at your own risk, please ensure your cycle is locked securely to the racks. Buy the best quality lock you can afford, ideally a D lock to secure your cycle. Cycle Hub users are responsible for procuring and maintaining an appropriate level of insurance cover for their property. Users are responsible for ensuring that their cycles are parked securely within the Cycle Hub using their own lock and removable items (such as lights and saddles) are not left unsecured.
The Council does not accept responsibility for loss, injury or damage, however caused.
The Cycle Hub is designed for occasional and daily parking not long term cycle storage; the Council reserves the right to remove any cycles left for long periods without use.
