Virgin Launch Bike Hub At Preston

Virgin West Coast Trains have officially opened their new bike hub at Preston, transforming the facility for cyclists using the station.

The Hub offers a secure space for up to 200 cycles, making it the largest on the West Coast Main Line. It also features a specialist cycling shop, managed by Leisure Lakes Bikes, a family-run business based in Preston.


Virgin Trains is a member of British Cycling’s Choose Cycling Network and we have invested nearly £500,000 as part of our latest scheme to improve facilities for cyclists. We were joined by Mark Hendrick, the MP for Preston who opened the facility.
