'If you build it, they will come'

Posted on in Cycles News

At Hudjo we are building a network of locations for cyclists to park their bicycles. Over Christmas we had a trickle of cyclists park at Evolve in the marketplace in Kingston but we know this is just the start. 


So to quote a line from the 1989 Kevin Costner movie the Field of Dreams 'if you build it, they will come' we need your help. 

Firstly we want to get every cycle retailer in the country signed up with Hudjo, so an initial network is established. To quote Nicola from B Page & sons in Hinckley, "I don’t have much room, but as a bike shop, I really should be encouraging more cycling, I'll sign up with 2 slots''. 

As a host you will receive 80% of the time rate revenue for parking these bikes. If the cyclists purchases from your store they can receive the parking for free at your discretion.

Retail and revenue streams are changing, thats why we are introducing an affiliate scheme for businesses that can engage cyclists. Any cyclist that signs up to Hudjo with your free park code, your business will receive 10% of their parking fee. That is at any Hudjo in our network.
