Would you like a cycle hoop on your road?

Brentford has had its first cycle hoop installed in York Road and it has proved to be a popular way to store cycles in a secure location outside of the home. Many residents might be reluctant to use peddle power if it means carrying a bike from the garden through the house and back again.

Residents group Air Quality Brentford are looking at positive ways to make a difference to our air quality. In an effort to get people thinking about cycling more they are asking for people in Brentford to express their initial interest in having a secure cycle hoop on their street.

With only 6 bike spaces in each hoop there is limited space and the current storage has a waiting list. There also needs to be space on your road to accommodate the hoop. Lambeth has reached its 100th cycle hoop, Ealing has four, and it's fast becoming a popular choice for Londoners with limited space for bike storage.

Rental costs for the York Road hanger is £36 per year (costs vary) with a refundable key deposit of £25.

More information on cycle hoops and where to find them can be found online.

Contact if you think this is something that could work on your street or contact your local ward Councillor directly and ask them for one.
