On-street cycle sheds aiming to boost bike use (UK)

Secure bike sheds are to be introduced to residential streets in Edinburgh as part of a new scheme aimed at encouraging people to take up cycling.

The city council has announced plans for a £50,000 pilot scheme that will see six new bicycle storage facilities introduced to streets dominated by tenement flats, where residents often struggle to find safe places to keep their bikes.

It is part of a range of measures by the council aimed at increasing the number of people that use bikes to get around the city rather than other more polluting modes of transport.
