With an increase in people cycling, and a decrease in people clubbing, a Shoreditch venue is turning its space into a bicycle storage park.
Village Underground, the arches famous for having a couple of old tube trains on the roof is opening the VU Cycle Park next week, with secure bicycle storage from 6am-10pm Mon-Sat, and repair services on Tuesdays.
They can hold over 400 bikes, so that’s a lot of cyclists heading to work in their warehouse spaces now having somewhere to store the bike during the day.
The rates are £5 per day, or £1 to £1.50 per hour depending on the time of day.
Even if you don’t work that close, the idea of storing your bike in a nightclub is a novel one that’s worth a modest detour.

Cycle Park is a temporary measure while the venue is shuttered for its normal events.
Unrelated to the bikes, they will also be selling a range of IPAs, beers, wines and spirits from the VU bar to take home, as well as speciality coffees available up until midday.
