Cycle parking

We work with Transport for London (TfL) to provide additional cycle parking facilities.

On street parking

We are working to ensure that cycle parking meets demand. If there are any on street locations where you think this is not being met please email us and we will see if it is possible to install parking on that site.

See our handy map of cycle parking spaces in the borough.

Cyclehoop bike hangars

Kingston Council has undertaken a programme of installing bike hangars at housing estates around the borough to help promote active travel amongst housing tenants.

The Go Cycle branded Cyclehoop hangars have spaces for six bikes and are  accessed via a key entry.

In November 2017 the council installed an additional 16 hangars, bringing the total number of hangars to 46 across the borough (two of these are operated by Cyclehoop while the rest are managed and maintained by the council).

Council housing tenants can access a space by contacting their housing manager. The racks are free to access for housing tenants.

Residents who are in privately owned blocks of flats are encouraged to get in touch if they would like to explore options for a bike hangar. 

The Sustainable Transport Team has succeeded in match-funding two hangars in Malden Manor and are keen to explore other residential opportunities with property management companies across the borough.

The council is also exploring options for on-street hangars for the public.

Bike pumps and public repair stands

There are seven public bike pumps and three public bike repair stands in Kingston.

These useful mid or end of trip facilities are part of the Go Cycle aims of encouraging more people to cycle in the borough and providing them with the routes and tools to do so.

The repair stand includes tools which allow cyclists to perform basic repairs from changing a flat tyre to adjusting brakes and derailleurs. The tools are securely attached to the stand with stainless steel cables and fasteners. The ability to hang the bike from the stand allows the pedals and wheels to spin freely while making adjustments.

The repair stands are located in Surbiton, New Malden and Norbiton, while the pumps are available in the town centre, Surbiton, Norbiton and New Malden.

A map of the pump and repair stand locations can be found here.
