Telford Homes celebrates Cycle To Work Day’s 10th anniversary, inviting buyers to explore the ideal home for switching up your morning commute and discovering the benefits of getting on a bike.
Telford Homes’ The Lock is perfect for those looking to cycle to work, being surrounded by open space whilst also benefiting from close proximity to the City. What’s more, as a low car housing scheme, the development offers 469 cycle parking spaces, allowing residents to make the most of exploring the range of London Cycle Network routes right on their doorstep.
In order to encourage residents to cycle or use public transport, each household at The Lock will receive a £415 sustainable travel voucher on completion, to spend on cycle hire, car club credit or Oyster card credit.
With the benefits of cycling to work including improved fitness and the reduction of stress, potential buyers can explore some of the most popular cycle routes the new waterfront neighbourhood has to offer:
Grand Union Canal
The Grand Union canal runs along the edge of The Lock, offering residents a picturesque view to enjoy from their private balcony or the development’s roof terrace. Residents can follow cycle routes along the canal taking them to Paddington for a relaxing commute to the office.
Lined with cafes, restaurants and a landscaped brewery, there are plenty of places for cyclists to stop off on their way home for a bite to eat.
Capital Ring Route
A large part of the 78 mile Capital Ring route – an initiative by the London Walking Forum that runs through the boroughs of London surrounding the whole city – passes through the borough of Ealing going directly through Greenford.
With The Lock also having excellent connections to the City, being in walking distance from Greenford Station and the Central line, residents can make the most of all that the London lifestyle has to offer.
For an escape from the hustle and bustle of the city, keen cyclists can take their commute over to Horsenden Hill; a beautiful area of ancient woodland, with plenty of cycle routes running through grassland, ponds and hedgerows.
Pedal up to the top of the hill to soak in unrivalled views over open green space.
The Lock features 194 stylish, spacious apartments in the vibrant, growing community of Greenford Quay. Each one, two and three bed apartment in this stunning collection includes high-quality fittings and features and expansive spaces that are flooded with natural light.
