  • Quintain Living’s provides residents with on-site bike workshop at Wembley Park
  • Neighbouring Twenty3c’s first London bike shop delivers expert resources & advice
  • Bike Week 2021 to run from 30 May to 5 June
It’s time to take to two wheels, as the UK’s Bike Week runs from 30 May to 5 June 2021. Delivered by Cycling UK and wrapping around the UN’s World Bicycle Day on 3 June, Bike Week will celebrate the enjoyment of cycling, as well as its mental and physical health benefits. The theme of Bike Week 2021 is health and wellbeing – a topic that is close to every Londoner’s heart after the past year. It comes at a time when those in the capital are taking to cycling like never before. Research by Transport for London has found that journeys by bike rose by 22% in Outer London during the pandemic. In certain hotspots, the rise was notably more marked – Wembley High Road saw a 236% in cycling, for example.  

“The explosion in cycling has done much to help Londoners cope with the physical and mental impact of lockdowns and other restrictions over the past year. We are delighted that Quintain Living residents are able to enjoy on-site facilities to support their love of cycling, from the outstanding service at Twentyc3’s first London store to Beton’s on-site bike workshop all supported by ample secure bike storage.”

The bike workshop in Beton is the latest in a series of innovative spaces and services available to Quintain Living residents. The award-winning management company oversees the rental of more than 2,500 apartments in Wembley Park. Over the past five years it has taken the rental experience in London to a new level, matching outstanding facilities with a curated events programme that has seen residents enjoy a wealth of social, cultural and fitness activities.   The borough of Brent, in which Wembley Park is located, is also working to support cycling as a fitness and lifestyle choice. Its cycle-friendly route planner supports residents to move about the borough using the most suitable routes, while the Greater London Authority has announced the funding of a new cycle route from Wembley to Willesden Junction. Brent delivers free adult cycling lessons to residents, while Willesden Cycling Club runs the free Wembley Park Cycle Club for children aged seven to 12.

 “Cycling is a healthy activity that can be enjoyed from a young age, doing much to boost fitness levels and the immune system. Wembley Park has a real focus on family life and that includes families making healthy lifestyle choices. Having so many cycling facilities available supports them to do so.”
