If you get the train much and you ride a bike you may be pleased to hear that nearly £1.5 million worth of funding's going towards cycle facilities across the East Midlands Trains network.

More racks and hire bikes are coming to 16 different stations across the network - including Loughbourough, Mansfield and Alfreton.

There'll also be increased CCTV security at Attenborough, Burton on Trent, Corby, Kettering, Mansfield, Mansfield Woodhouse, Market Harborough, Melton Mowbray, Newark Castle, Skegness and Wellingborough stations.

David Oldershaw, Area Station Manager - Leicestershire said: "This is fantastic news for cyclists using our network. Over the last 18 months we have installed more spaces than ever before and this trend is set to continue with this investment.

"More than £1.4 million will be invested in facilities at 15 stations providing over a thousand more spaces for cyclists.

"Good cycle facilities are vital for people choosing to travel to our stations by bike, this investment means that even more passengers will be-able to cycle to our stations with confidence that their bikes will be safe, secure and protected until they return."
