Love is in the air… find Brighton’s most romantic bike parking spot

Find all four in Brighton's North Laine area - send us a pic on Twitter and you might even win a Valentine from us!...

It’s the day for all things hearts and flowers, and this Valentine’s Day, see if you can spot Brighton’s most romantic bike stand - and snap us a picture.

Four heart-shaped bike parking stands have been installed around Brighton, having been left over from a London to Brighton British Heart Foundation ride installation.

The council is asking locals and tourists to snap photos of them and tag them in Twitter with #BHLoveCycling - and we’d love to see them too - so tag us @roadcc.

The hearts are only temporary - unless Twitter shows them some love - so get snapping.

To start you off, they’re all in the North Laine area - if you can find all four and let us know there might even be a pair of socks in it for you.

Councillor Gill Mitchell, chairwoman of the city's environment, transport and sustainability committee, said: “This is a lovely fun idea and will provide some temporary, more secure bike parking in the city centre, as well as highlight the popularity of cycling in the city.”


After an unpromising start, having to be bribed by her parents to learn to ride without stabilisers, Sarah became rather keener on cycling in her university years, and was eventually persuaded to upgrade to proper road cycling by the prospect of a shiny red Italian bike, which she promptly destroyed by trapping a pair of knickers in the rear derailleur.
