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; Camden was rather slow to get started but is in the process of catching up.
The map below (courtesy CycleHoop) shows the current location of Bikehangars in Camden as of May 2020. You can get an updated interactive version from the Cyclehoop website at www.cyclehoop.rentals
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. Please:
- record your need for a Bikehangar with Cyclehoop, who manufacture and install them, using their webpage (www.cyclehoop.rentals); it will ask for your postcode and then if you can’t find a space, you need to suggest a location using their contact form.
- send an email to Richard Riddle <Richard.Riddle@camden.gov.uk>.
- and, please, if Camden have a consultation, reply in favour!
