With more and more people choosing pedal power over other forms of transport, Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes are helping people in Cheshire to get on its bike by building new homes close to the National Cycle Network and providing storage for bicycles at their developments.
Cycling in the UK is increasing year on year according to British Cycling, the sport’s governing body, with more than two million people across the country getting out on their bike at least once a week.
Steve Jackson, Sales Director at Barratt and David Wilson Homes North West said, “When planning our developments we make it a priority to provide homebuyers with the opportunity to maintain healthy lifestyles.
“Building new homes close to a route on the National Cycle Network, encourages people to participate in a leisure activity that is economical and will benefit their overall wellbeing, as well as give them the chance to explore their new neighbourhood.”
The five star housebuilders also ensure that homeowners’ bikes are kept safe by providing convenient storage in the form of communal bike sheds at their developments and bike racks in the garages of the detached homes.
Steve adds: “Following the success of Olympic icons like Bradley Wiggins, cycling has grown in popularity not only for sport but as a means of commuting to work. In recognition of this growing trend, we now provide suitable and safe storage for peoples’ bikes at a number of our developments in Cheshire.”
