Cycle parking

Secure residential cycle parking

We have introduced bike hangars to meet the demand for secure residential cycle parking. Bike hangars are for residents who do not have a space at home to store their bikes. They are half the length of a parking bay and can store up to six bikes.

How to get a cycle parking space

Applications for spaces are managed by Cyclehoop. A maximum of two spaces can be allocated per person. If a bike hangar is under-used, then Cyclehoop can give extra spaces if needed.

Get a new bike hangar for your area

There is a limit to the number of bike hangars we can install each year. We select sites based on:

  • demand from local residents
  • number of bike thefts in the local area
  • community support from local residents
  • distribution across the borough

Request a new bike hangar in your area

Please note it is not possible to install hangars in every location due to limited budgets. 

Due to high demand we are unable to reply to every email. You will get an automated response as proof of receipt. Should your street be identifed as a potential location for a hangar, you will get a letter consulting you on the proposal. 

Demand is looked at collectively and is used to assess provision. There is no guarantee that a hangar will be installed in any particular street.

On street cycle parking - Cycle stands

We have invested heavily in cycle parking facilities over recent years installing over 3,700 on-street cycle parking spaces.  

If you would like to suggest a location for a cycle stand, please email cycling@ealing.gov.uk  with the location, and we will try to install the 'Sheffield stand', subject to funding availability.
