Pd49523-4 Cycle Penistone celebrates new premises move

A BIKE hire business which began life in a shipping container 18 months ago is gearing up for a big year after its new premises were officially opened.

 

Cycle Penistone, run by Penistone and District Community Partnership, has moved into a building on St Mary's Street, next to the Trans Pennine Trail, formerly used by skip firm It's For Hire.


The community initiative, which has about 50 bikes for hire, launched in a portable storage unit in 2012 - in the skip company's yard.

 

Penistone mayor Jonathan Cutts opened the building.
