On my way home from Chester recently I changed trains at Crewe.
Whilst waiting for my connection I discovered that this station has plenty of cycle parking - on the platforms.
There is the usual disclaimer notice,
but the facilities provided look pretty good.
This cycle parking is provided on a number of platforms.
It is secure and under cover,
and for bonus points...
there is a pump
and a maintenance stand
provided by the local council and Virgin trains.
Sadly, such facilities are not provided at Manchester Piccadilly station. Here the attitude is totally different.
All the cycle parking is outside with no cycle parking at all on the platforms, despite the large area which could be used for cycle parking between platform 10 and 11.
