Builders on one of Bristol’s biggest developments will be adding a green tick to their environmental credentials thanks to a partnership with Brompton Bike Hire.
Construction workers at the landmark Assembly Bristol project will saddle up on eight iconic Brompton bikes to commute to and from the site – helping ease congestion.
A solar-powered Brompton Bike Hire dock has been installed to give workers access to the fleet of folding Brompton hire bikes in a first-of-its-kind campaign.
Brompton Bike Hire MD Julian Scriven said it made much more sense for a dock to be in place from the start of a project, rather than at the end.
“We realised that if Brompton Bike Hire docks were installed at the start of the build, they would not have had the same reliability problems. Our bikes can be pre-booked so they’re always there when you need them. It’s more like temporary ownership than bike hire, as our bikes are yours for the day once rented.”
“Bell Hammer’s development manager, Patrick Davis, said:”We have worked with Brompton Bike Hire on a couple of previous projects, including Assembly London, so we know the cycling facilities it provides are first-rate.
Bristol currently has two other Brompton Bike Hire docks, one at Temple Meads and one at Bristol Parkway.
