For residents of the surrounding blocks

Cycle parking needed here.

New theatre opened and there are no cycle stands nearby.

Just at the junction, just within Redcliffe Square, on the wider part of the footpath before it narrows for car parking bays

Doesn't seem to be anything around here - usually end up locking to scaffolding around the corner

Cycle parking needed here.

enough cycle stands to secure 10 bicycles

Too great a risk of theft / damage not to have a shed. Flats have no space for cycle storage around the area

from RBKC: The cycle stands at the junction of Cromwell Road/Queen’s Gate would have been installed by Transport for London as they are the highway authority where there are red no waiting lines and any request for additional cycle parking … [more]

The only parking is at the corner of Cromwell Rd and the stands are almost always full - especially in school term time. Location type is a mix of public, red route and school.

There are currently 5 stands but they are nearly always full. The space is big enough for at least another three stands which would help local residents and shoppers.

Retail high street/residential area with lots of cyclists, would be useful to have a secure parking shelter

Ideal location for a secure bike locker, filling a single car park bay

There is not enough space infront of the Town Hall and no parking by the Sports Centre.

Cycle parking at entrance of any park

Cycle parking needed here.

There are currently 5 bike stands here but it is a very busy location outside waitrose. This photo was taken at 9am and is full with 10 bikes. It is s very large open area of pavement that has more space available for more bike racks.

covered and secure

Popular student area, nowhere for bikes!

cycle stands needed near every gate to Hyde Park

They wouldn't need this extra sign if there was any normal cycle parking in the neighbourhood - bizarre omission from the new Exhibition Road layout.

The new layout on Exhibition Road - Barclays Bike stations, lots of car parking, but virtually nothing for normal bikes to lock on to.

Not enough parking at Earl's Court

At least 50 racks outside Holland Park tube.

Portobello Road junction with tavistock road W11 - there used to be loads of bike racks here, but K+C have 'improved' this area - and removed almost all the bike racks! Very indequate provision now.

Dangerous railings for the taxis to crush bikes against when they are trying to park, and no way to get across to the zebra crossing from the bike parking along a bit, all solved by removing the rails and putting more bike stands!

There are about 20 racks here but 550 students! Also some of the racks are not protected from cars and have been damaged along with my bike. There should be bollards so people damage their cars not the bikes!

Incredible lack of cycle parking near the Science Museum despite the remodelling of the street. Not everyone will arrive by borisbike.

There are bikes regularly anchored to lamp posts outside this doctors surgery and the bus stop in this area. Some secure bike parking would look much better and be very much appreciated.

There are hundreds of students living on this block, and only a few racks which are always full overnight. People have had to lock their bike through mine to get a spot then I can't use it!

Imperial College - bikes on every pole, parking for residents' cars.

Imperial College - parking for residents' cars, not bikes

Two bike stands by the scarsdale tavern would be fantastic.

No bike parking at all when visiting the science museum!


The popularity of this island cycle parking area indicates to me that there are not enough cycle racks provided by the nearby Imperial College on its campus.

The bikes parked here demonstrate a clear need for some on-street cycle parking.

There are not enough bike racks outside South Kensington.

No cycle parking anywhere in this area.

A lot of stands were removed when the Hospital Frontage was rearranged and only a little was replaced at the side, none on the front. Consequently bicycles are plastered around railings where they are not welcome.

I park my bike here each day outside Julie's restaurant. 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 … [more]

Existing stands outside South kensington tube station always full, during the day, and totally inadequate.

Not sure this is exactly right, where I mean is at the back entrance to Science Museum where there is loads of room for stands. This would benefit both Imperial College and visitors to Science Museum but infact anywhere near here would be … [more]

Anywhere between the Gilston Road and Drayton Gardens. Large cinema / martial arts club / coffee shops and no where to park a bike.

15 bikes

10 stands

5 stands

10 stands

Extend number of stands. Currently only 4-5, always full

outside the tube station the existing stands are alwways full. There is lots of available space for more cycle parking.

There are so few bike stands outside South Kensington station after the reorganised street layout, there are bikes attached to all the street furniture around the area. Particularly around Harrington Road. Far more stands are needed.

Outside the Pigs Ear Pub, needs 4 stands

Not enough stands on this end of Notting Hill Gate.

lost my front wheel here when locked to a tree

There only appear to be a couple of bike stands in the entire park (not incl. Boris bike parking) which means you have to take it everywhere with you in the park.

Please Boris. I know the resident committees can be fearsome, but some locals (and I'm very local) actually do want some improvements to this area.

Dear LCC, 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, Tim

10+ bikes parked on railings in summer, sometimes >1 deep. Can we have some roadspace given over to Sheffield stands? Railings get bent regularly (by articulated lorries entering Waitrose loading bay?) and damage bikes parked on railings.

A 6-rack electronic cycle rack could go here next to the private racks - there is one less phonebox now so there is room! This would be appreciated by all the neighbours!

Winchester Court building needs secure bike parking. They removed the old bike parking stand for no reason and now the space sits empty.

An obvious location for cycle-parking at Earls Court

All the cycle parking at Earls Court - though there's plenty of space available beyond

All the cycle-parking provided at Earls Court. That's it.
