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. There are now over 150 hangars in Camden but there is a long waiting list and funding is an issue. CycleHoop used to supply and manage all the hangars but now some are supplied and managed by Falco.
The locations of existing and planned hangars are shown on Camden’s interactive map –
Camden Council will consider requests from groups of residents to install Bikehangars in their streets. Please:
- Record your need for a Bikehangar space with Cyclehoop and Falco, using their webpages; they will ask for your postcode. If you can’t find a space, you can register for a waiting list and/or suggest a location using their contact forms.
- If you suggest a new location, send an email to Camden’s Cycling Team <firstname.lastname@example.org>.
- Talk to your local councillor about funding from the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL).
- and, please, if Camden have a consultation, reply in favour!
