Membership, Usage and Fees
As a membership facility, the centre is available to staff and volunteers working at or near the VGH campus. Six membership options are available to suit the diverse needs of the cycling community.
Note: Fees may change and are designed to be as low as possible and only to cover operating expenses so the facility is 100% self-sustaining. Existing bike cages within VGH campus will remain in place and free of charge.
