Located on the Science Vale Cycle Network, Milton Park has a very active cycling community and engaged Bike Users’ Group. Excellent connections around Oxfordshire make cycling the mode of choice for a significant proportion of occupiers – not to mention incentives like a monthly free breakfast for people cycling to work, an onsite Bike Doctor to help fix & maintain your bike and cycle maintenance stands across the Park.

 

Milton Park has its own free ebike and bike hire scheme for occupiers, with eight, geo-fenced cycle hubs around the Park and at Didcot Parkway Station Cycle Hub. Register via the Donkey Republic app using your Milton Park work email address to see where the free bikes are located. The system will recognise your domain and not charge you for rental (the first 48 hours of use are free).

 

Please check the battery on the ebikes before setting off and if you need to, collect a fresh battery from Security (what3words: ///commander.tones.brittle). Helmets are available to borrow from the Innovation Centre at 99 Park Drive (what3words: ///scores.honey.ambitions) or the Bee House at 140 Eastern Avenue (what3words: ///feasted.cloud.honeybees).

What3words 

Street addresses aren’t always accurate enough to specify precise locations. While there are postcodes across Milton Park, there are numerous buildings and different entrances. Addressees can’t be changed as there are so many patents associated with the mazing companies that work here so at the end of 2020 Milton Park adopted the use of what3words.

The team at what3words has given every three-metre square of the world a unique combination of three words.

Used for e-commerce and delivery, navigation, emergencies and more, it uses a geocode system for the communication of locations, encoding coordinates into three dictionary words which are predefined.

Milton Park’s total holding is 302 acres which is 1,222,194 sq m.

With nine sq m per what3words’ square, Milton Park is covered by 135,800 what3word squares!
