Cycle Parking in Kingston

Kingston continues to experience higher and higher levels of cycling, which means that the availability of on street cycle parking is continually being reviewed by the council, in co-operation with TfL, to prevent demand from outstripping supply. During the course of 2016, Transport Initiatives conducted a detailed study of cycle parking facilities in the borough and their recommendations are currently being incorporated into the existing plans for more new parking installations.

There is a map of both current and planned cycle parking locations here. If you wish to recommend where more facilties should be built, please email or call the council on 020 8547 5826.

TfL also provides free cycle parking stands for businesses (you only pay for installation).

Each year Kingston bids for funding to provide secure cycle parking facilities for blocks of flats. Depending on the circumstances this can be fully funded or match funded. For all enquiries on the provision of residential cycle parking please email or call the council on 020 8547 5826.

The council's Sustainable Transport Team have been working with RBK Residents Services Officers over the past 7 years to provide secure cycle storage to our residents who currently have none. The total number of hangars is 63 across the borough (two of these are operated by Cyclehoop while the rest are managed and maintained by the council). Each hangar stores up to 6 bikes securely. The locks are highly secure with special keys that can't be copied. Local authority residents who are interested in using a cycle hangar should contact their Housing Manager to see whether space is available.

They are currently exploring on-street hangars for the public in areas of higher density housing.  Please email, call the council on 020 8547 5826 or visit the TfL website for details.

Become a cycling instructor

If you love cycling, you might consider becoming a cycling instructor. Whether you would like to make it a full-time job or you just want to pass on some skills at your local school or youth club, undertaking the National Standard Instructor training is the first step.

Kingston is the only London borough recognised as an instructor training organisation (ITO). Since 2007, we have trained more than 300 instructors for local authorities and independent providers.

You can read more about our training here, and learn more about being a Bikeability Instructor here

Get involved?

Cycling is a fantastic way to exercise, travel, and enjoy the great outdoors. Wind in the hair (under your helmet of course), sunglasses on, and a picnic in your bag. However, not everyone sees it this way.

Therefore, CycleKingston is appealing to you to share the good, the bad (and the ugly?!) We want to hear your cycling experiences, news and showcase success stories along the way too.

If you have material you think we should feature on the website, drop us an email on with the information and some images and we'll do our best to feature them.
