Auckland airport installs Cyclehoop car space bike rack

In a bid to encourage cycling, Auckland Airport has installed a bike rack from Cyclehoop that converts one car space into cycle parking for 10 bikes. 

Cyclehoop is a British company, which specialises in bike stands, shelters, racks and other cycling facilities. 

The rack is just the first initiative by Auckland Airport in an extensive plan to support workers in the area who would like to cycle their commute. Other projects include new cycle trails and improvements to cycling facilities and safety.
