[Image taken 18.3.09] Bike Hut/Halfords, Old Kent Road, London. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] This is the cycle parking outside Halfords (which has a Bike Hut). The landlord of the site suggested it would suffice for customers of B&Q despite that store being at the other end of the retail park: #178866 and links. Compare with the racks in: #178871.

[Image taken 24.5.09] B&Q, Old Kent Road, London. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] Context: #178866 (and links). Chains have been added to the posts that separate the bike racks from the nearest motor vehicle parking space. I arrived as the owners of the two bikes shown in the background were struggling to secure them to the railings of the trolley park. I asked them if they were using that area because they preferred it or because they did not know there was cycle parking. The latter reason was true. They followed me to the racks and had secured their bikes in no time. There are many reasons people don't use cycle parking provided. Sometimes, as here, it is because racks are provided but not signposted and not visible.

[Image taken 8.4.09] B&Q, Old Kent Road, London. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] Context: #178866 (and links). This image shows how far the bike racks at B & Q are from the entrance to the store. Compare these with the situation in Cambridge: #178871. And - York provision installed in May 2022 - # They are 'beyond' the entrance. To cycle to them you would need to go through the car park - not a nice proposition. Plus there is no sign alerting people to their existence or pointing to them so I wonder how many people will see them. Further, if you are buying large or heavy items and you need a trolley, because the racks are so far from the entrance and the trolley park - you can't use those shown in the image, the ones to use are on the far side of the entrance - you have to leave your shopping and/or bags unattended at your bike while you return the trolley. I can't load up my bike while locked as I have to carry the locks in my pannier so I had to leave all items and my pannier on the ground next to my (locked) bike. By chance, I was here at a very quiet time so I had a clear view of my bike, pannier and purchases most of the time, however I did still worry I might have seen the last of them. When busy, this area will be crowded and there will be no line of sight. It is an impractical and, I feel, dangerous (because cyclists will need to walk such a distance and several times among moving vehicles in what is very limited space when the store is busy), place to locate the racks.

[Image taken 8.4.09] B&Q, Old Kent Road, London. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] Context: #178866 (and links). I was pleased to see the spaces between the uprights in the long-campaigned for racks at B&Q are quite far apart. I was able to get into the space and load up my bike. It would be tighter if there were another bike on the next upright but I'm not complaining about this aspect at least.

178866 Photo #178866

[Image taken 8.4.09] B&Q, Old Kent Road, London. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] Since 19 June 2006 I've been lobbying B & Q and the managing agents of the site to get cycle parking put in outside B&Q. There's a clear need - there was always at least one other bike, usually several, attached to the railings surrounding the trolley area. Today, a nice surprise - cycle parking! There are two lots of 'toast racks' - one with 3 uprights, accommodating 6 bikes, one with 2, accommodating 4 bikes. However, had I approached from the road entrance I wouldn't have seen the racks. There are no signs and they are a long way from the entrance. It's not all bad news though. The image shows the existence of posts which are presumably intended to protect the bikes from motor vehicles while they are being parked or making some other manoeuvre next to the racks. Other images this B&Q: #178867, #178868, #178869. Comparison with an example of good practice at the B&Q in Cambridge: #178871. Image of unusable racks at the nearby Bike Hut: #178870.

[Image taken 3 November 2021] Mill Street, London SE1. Cycles come in all shapes and sizes and it’s important to give people convenient places to park them. It’s nice to see these specific areas for cargo and adapted cycles in Southwark. See also: #175470, #175471.

Although there are already a number of hangars in the street and nearby, they are all full with long waiting lists. Clearly demand is outstripping supply. My daughter currently has to carry her bike every day to a first floor flat, past a neighbour who complains incessantly about noise.

All nearest secure bike hangars are full with waiting lists. Lots of LTN locally would be reinforced if people could park bikes safely. Terraced houses make this difficult and it's a high crime area with lots of bike thefts. I suggest a second bike hangar in Ivanhoe Road near Coplestone Passage

I've recently sold my car and so theoretically there's now space outside my property (54a Heber Road) for a bike shed to hold up to 6 bikes. Most of the houses on my street have no garden access, shared entrances and narrow hallways. The waiting list for other sheds in this area is over subscribed and so there's an obvious demand for more storage space.

There is no cycle parking on the street or on the estate. All houses have small front gardens that wouldn't fit bikes, and people just lock bikes to lamposts. Also, all the houses are flats or half houses so they all share hallways and cannot store bikes there. We need a cycle hanger at each end of Kinsale Road - to provide secure, weather-protected cycle storage.

For the residents of Renforth Street Estate - a lot of cars park here, and this congestion could be eased by a number of bike spaces. As it's a cul de sac, bikes are often stolen from outside and, therefore, many residents who would like to bike cannot. Ours has been stolen, or had parts of it stolen on a number of occasions
