178870Photo #178870[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.Cycle parking:

178869Photo #178869[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.Cycle parking:

178868Photo #178868[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.Cycle parking:

178867Photo #178867[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.Cycle parking:

178866Photo #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.Cycle parking:

The waiting list for other sheds in this area is over subscribed and so there's an obvious demand for more storage space.Cycle parking:

151157Photo #151157• our shared building has shown interest in a Bikehangar as there aren’t any available spaces nearby,
• especially on the south side of Grove Park, SE5, are a large number of flats and estates without outdoor space to park their bikes
• people would cycle more if they would have an option where to keep their bikes. We see a lot of new electric car chargers on the road, which is good, but not everyone can afford an electric car
• we think that outside of 16 Grove Park could work nicely as there is a large multi-occupation building there with many bike-owning residents who are in need of storage.

Looking forward to your reply.

We would like a bike hangar that accommodates a minimum of 6 bikes.
