Day-to-day, on everyday trips, the most convenient place to leave your bike when out and about is somewhere right near your location where you can lock it securely. Look out for a Sheffield Stand.
Buy the best quality lock you can afford, ideally a D lock, and secure your bike in the most visible location you can find with high footfall. So think outside shops, cafes, libraries, Metrolink stops - somewhere busy that offers higher natural security.
Limited space where you live? Bike hangars are a great solution.
Capable of storing six bikes in an outdoor, compact and secure shelter, bike hangars are currently in place in locations across Salford.
A bike hangar is the height, width and length of a small car and takes up about the same amount of room on the street as a car parking space. They can be placed either on the road or pavement.
In Salford, residents pay a £25 key deposit and an annual fee for their space. Initially the annual fee is subsidised at £20 per year for the first two years, going up to £40 per year after that.
