Those who regularly get out their cycling gear and bike to work in Cambridge may be seeing the benefits of a new charity initiative from OWL Bikes, as well as National Express.
Cyclists in the city had previously complained that up to 200 bike space at Cambridge railway station were taken up by abandoned bikes, leaving more than 1,000 cyclists competing for an estimated 800 spaces, Cambridge News reported.
But a spokesman for the group has confirmed that 24 abandoned cycles have now been removed - creating more places for cyclists - and an additional 50 bikes have been tagged for future removal.
He added that eventual plans for the total number of spaces at the site to reach 3,000 could be good news for local cyclists.
City councillor for Market Ward Colin Rosenstiel commented: "Cambridge has more cyclists than anywhere in the UK and we need to make sure that they can access the station easily and quickly.
The news comes ahead of Bike Week, which will be held later this month to encourage people across the UK to get their cycling gear on and take up two-wheeled travel.
