Cyclehoop is proud to have been chosen to design customised cycle stands for the Grass Routes neighbourhood project in Lambeth. The cycle stands were designed for the newly renamed Van Gogh Walk in Stockwell and consist of a round design and the use of Albertus font, spelling out V-G-W.
Lambeth council have been working alongside local residents to transform the dimly lit back road in Stockwell into a cleaner, greener and safer area. The street, previously named Isabel Street, has been renamed after the famous artist Van Gogh, who lived in the area in the late 1800’s whilst working as an art dealer in Covent Garden.
The Grass Routes project aims to make the area safe and pleasant for everyone to use, particularly for vulnerable road users such as pedestrians and cyclists. As part of the project, Cyclehoop has installed over 27 Bikehangars in Lambeth for residents to rent spaces in them.
“The special bike stands on Van Gogh Walk fit in beautifully with this high-quality public realm improvement scheme that remembers Stockwell’s famous former resident Vincent van Gogh. The project has also seen the introduction of 27 on-street secure cycle units that will be of great benefit to the many local residents who live in flats and have little room to store a bike inside their homes.” – Lambeth Council.
