CycleCenter for Urban Planning and Design.
A place to rest and recover, to socially gather, to share information on the ride, health and fitness, purchase or rent parts, and a place for entertainment.
A CycleCenter is either a single or a series of containers in 8-foot by 20-foot size for easy transport by rail or truck. Each container is structurally self supporting, easy and fast to assemble therefore no special trades or tools are needed once placed on site. Each CycleCenter is pre-manufactured with color coded industrially durable finishes. Defining super graphics are added to the exterior of each container according to its function.
CycleCenter can be arranged in the most flexible layout to suit the event. Containers can be stationed throughout the ride either sited together as a cluster or sited separately. CycleCenter can be furnished on demand by foldable and retractable furniture and equipment. Assembled in two stories or in a single story to make the best of the compact footprint and views.
CycleCenter comes with three components; the Dining/WiFiCenter, the RentalCenter, and the RestCenter:
* Dining/WiFiCenter- Can be assembled in 2 levels, color coded in red. The 1st floor contains a WiFi cafe, parts and accessory shop, and info desk. The 2nd floor contains a dining area, break area, and refreshments corner as a manned bar or as vending machines.
* RentalCenter- A single level container color coded in yellow & orange. This center has a bike shop, rental and information counter.
* RestCenter- A single level container color coded in green & blue. One container designed for men and the other container designed for women. Each RestCenter contains restrooms, physical therapy section, lockers, showers, sinks and benches.

* Low flow water fixtures
