Because so many bike shops have PlantLocks blooming outside them, PlantLock & Green Roof Bike Shelters are happily sponsoring the London Cycling Campaign's 2014 Award for Best Small Bike Retailer.
Congratulations to Brixton Cycles for winning ‘Best Small Bike Retailer 2014’ at the London Cycling Campaign’s Awards on Wednesday night.
To us they’re a stalwart of the London cycling scene, and significantly to us, still a co-operative.
PlantLock and Green Roof Shelters sponsored this award, and were very happy Brixton Cycles won.
LB Camden ordered 60 two metre planters for their flagship Royal College Street scheme, from us at the Front Yard Company. The planters are used as part of 'light touch separation' between vehicles and cyclists/pedestrians.
As well as the planters we also provided the planting. This focusses specifically on hardy plants that are good sources of nectar, for their wildlife and biodiversity value, as well as appeal to residents.
All part of our desire to both improve cycling and biodiversity in London.
