HUDJO: Attracting cyclists to your business

Posted on in Business News , Cycles News

You can offer a bike parking service via the HUDJO app and attract more customers to your business.


Owners could use bikes for thousands of local journeys every day, but they don’t know where to safely park them.


Being a HUDJO host puts your business on the bike parking map. You give cyclists a secure place to park and the app makes the whole transaction easy.


45% of people are unwilling to use a bike if there is no secure parking at their destination ("Bike Week 2020 - Bike Parking and the Bottom Line - YouTube." 24 Sep. 2020)


HUDJO helps fix this problem by encouraging customers to pedal directly to your door. All you need is the HUDJO app, a smart device, and a dry and secure space to park bikes.


To park two bikes, you really don’t need much space at all. Some of our hosts use their store cupboard!



 Now you’re a HUDJO host, you will attract cyclists to park their bikes with you, increasing your revenue through bike parking and increased footfall.


Give your customers peace of mind. Knowing their bike is secure, they are more relaxed and spend more time and more money with you.


Road traffic congestion makes car journeys slow and high streets unattractive. So, when cyclists open up the HUDJO app and see your business on the map, they can avoid the traffic and cycle straight to your door.


Cyclists from out of town, day tripping or just passing through, will find your location through the app and park with you.


How does it work?


  1. You choose the number of parking spaces and the times they are available


  1. Cyclists check-in via the app for anything from a few minutes to a full day


  1. Your staff manage the checking in and out process using the HUDJO app


  1. The parking payment is made in-app via Stripe and you receive your revenue at the end of each month
