We want to improve cycle parking in Hammersmith & Fulham. If you need short-term or long-term secure cycle parking near you, let us know.
Your bike’s safety also depends on how well you lock it, the recommendation is to use two different types of lock to lock both wheels and the bike frame to the bike stand. See Lock it or lose it.
At the moment we can provide three types of secure cycle parking – on-street cycle stands, bike hangars and our new Hammersmith cycle hub.
On-street cycle stands
Simple on-street cycle stands (metal hoops) which are meant for secure short-term cycle parking. Each stand allows two bikes to be securely parked. Depending on the available budget, we will install cycle stands in areas of high demand. You can help us identify where this demand is highest.
If you would like us to install cycle stands on your street fill in our request form.
Your request will be placed on a waiting list and we will install stands if there are other people asking for stands in the same area, and if the funding is available.
Bike hangars are secure outdoor shelters for up to 6 bikes. They can be placed on-street as they fit in parking spaces, or on the pavement where space is sufficient. Bike hangars are primarily intended for frequent cyclists who cannot properly store their bike in their home.
The rent for 1 space in a bike hangar is £72 per year and you can check for available spaces in existing bike hangars.
Cyclists who rent a space are provided with a key. This ensures that only those who rent a space can open the bike hangar.
If you can't find a space in an existing bike hangar feel free to ask for a new bike hangar to be installed.
If you have already requested a bike hangar via email in the past you do not need to fill in this form as your request would already be on the waiting list.
Locations will mainly be prioritised by demand, if several residents ask for a bike hangar in the same area, it is more likely that one will be installed in this area.
Our ability to provide new bike hangars will depend on available funding. We review the waiting list once every six months.

Hammersmith cycle hub
Residents and commuters can now park their cycles safely and securely at the FREE new Hammersmith Cycle Hub – the first cycle storage hub ever built in H&F.
Located in midst of the hussle and bussle of Hammersmith Broadway, the hub provides a secure and convenient solution for travellers to cycle to the station, leave their bike and continue their journey by tube or bus.
