During our recent meeting with Cardiff Council we were informed that the nextbikes station will be located outside McColl's on Station Road.
The station will be installed in the very near future.
The bike station will measure 7m by 2m (7m by 1 m without the bikes).
If this location proves to be unsuitable, the station can be moved quite easily.
Cardiff is also considering installing electric bikes at Radyr Station. Other locations may also be considered.
What is a nextbike? This is a system which rents bicycles for anyone who has downloaded the nextbikes app onto hir, or her, mobile. You can rent a bike from any nextbike station - and leave it at any other station. You can read more about nextbikes here.
This could be another useful resource for Radyr and Morganstown residents. For instance, you could go to town on the train - but fancy cycling home. Now you will be able to grab a nextbike and enjoy riding along the Taff Trail.
We will have to see how the nextbikes look outside McColl's. Will they limit the room available for pedestrians? Let us know what you think after they are installed.
