Cycle lockers provide excellent security and weather protection. They can also be used to store cycle accessories, such as helmet, panniers and lights. They are however signigicantly more expensive to install than Sheffield stands.
Surrey County Council installed 24 lockers at its main site at Kingston-upon-Thames; the resulting increase in cycling helped reduce car trips to the offices by 13%.
Lockers installed at railway stations have increased cycle trips by up to 600% - twice the National Cycling Strategy target for 2012.
