Better Bankside, a business-owned promotional organisation, has installed an outdoor work station for the cyclists using Cycle Superhighway Seven through the Bankside district of London. Better Bankside's corporate colours are grey and pink so the BanksidePitstop has been painted an unmissable pink. The tool station - which is free to use - has its own Twitter account and is billed as "the UK's 1st on-street cycle fixing station."

BanksidePitstop uses the work stand and on-street pump designed by Cyclehoop of London. The work stand has eight tools, including tyre levers, adjustable spanner, multi-tool and screwdriver, tethered by cable.

Better Bankside is a Business Improvement District, a non-profit company limited by guarantee, run by and for its members. It has no share capital. Any surpluses generated are reinvested into the company's services. Better Bankside is the third BID in the UK. Better Bankside's members are the 480+ companies in the BID area who pay its annual levy.
