Bicycle Network: Parkiteer (370)
How can a Parkiteer cage benefit you?
Secure bike park
Parking your bike in a Parkiteer cage will not only provide security but shelter your bike from inclement weather.
Good for your health
Riding a bike is a low-impact form of exercise that can be enjoyed by people of all ages and fitness levels. When you travel part of your journey by bicycle, you will arrive feeling energised, as well as getting your daily recommended intake of exercise (30 minutes).
Riding your bike to the station can save you money.
If you live within two or three kilometres of the station, your journey time by bike will be similar to driving to the station and finding a car park.
For example, here are door-to-door travel times for a 2.8km journey to Werribee station:
• Bus = 20 minutes (includes waiting & walking time)
• Car = 11 minutes (includes finding a car park and walk to station entrance)
• Bike = 13 minutes (includes Parkiteer lock up time and walk to station entrance).
On the weekends, why not ride to the Parkiteer with the kids then take the train to the museum or the footy?
