Bikehangars are secure storage units for bicycles. Each unit typically stores 6 bicycles and is placed either on the street or on council or private property. Some boroughs, such as Hackney and Lambeth, have hundred of public bikehangars (see map at www.cyclehoop.com/rentals); Camden was rather slow to get started but is starting to catch up. Newsflash: At last, a few more Bikehangars.
The map below shows the current status of Bikehangars in Camden. Locations are based on postcode and are therefore approximate; clicking on a location will show more details. Note that the requests are just those known to us; there are others that have gone direct to Camden or to Cyclehoop.
Camden Council will consider requests from groups of residents to install Bikehangars in their streets. They prefer at least 6 residents to express an interest in renting a space in a Bikehangar. If you know other cyclists locally who would like a Bikehangar, please tell Richard Riddle at Camden (Richard.email@example.com), who will consider the feasibility of a location near you.
You can also record your need for a Bikehangar with Cyclehoop, who manufacture and install them (www.cyclehoop.com/rentals).
To further this, we have made a bikehangar-flyer_rr for you to print and distribute. If you would like a Bikehangar in your street, why not attach flyers to the bikes your neighbours park outside or deliver them to their houses? If you are enthusiastic about this campaign more generally, why not print enough copies to attach them to all the bikes parked in your neighbourhood?
