Railings get bent regularly (by articulated lorries entering Waitrose loading bay?) and damage bikes parked on railings.

Why-oh-why is there no Boris Bike rack in Sloane Square? Putting one in the roundabout would have helped to draw people into the criminally underused space.

Thanks,

There are three Sheffield stands but if you aren't there by about 9.30 they are filled up both sides and you have to chain your bike to the nearby bench - not ideal. If it's like this in November, it will surely be even worse in summer. One or two more bike stands would be great.Cycle parking:

But an easy solution to the neighbourhood would be making at least the far end of Longridge road (marked) two way for bike and many of the other one way roads between the two big roads two way for bikes. Now the only way I can legally bike to my house is several blocks on Warwick.Dutch-style cycleway:
