Where do you want them?

Residents across the region are being given the opportunity to suggest locations on residential roads where cycle hangars, which can securely store up to six bikes, should be installed.

A new consultation has been launched to give people a say in where they want to see dozens of hangars rolled out across the region.

It comes after the Mayoral Combined Authority secured over £3.5 million to boost walking and cycling in the West earlier in the year, including funding to install up to 80 lockable, secure cycle hangars at locations where people most want to see them.

The consultation gives local residentas the chance to select where they would like to see one of these cycle hangars – which usually take up the space of about one parked car – using a simple-to-use interactive online map, and then answering some short survey questions to explain their reasons why.

The idea is to provide really detailed feedback helping the Combined Authority draw up a shortlist of sites based on where there is most demand for the hangars, plus other criteria such as where residents have little to no storage for their bikes indoors.

This will then be passed to the local councils, who will do things like carry out a physical site inspection of the shortlisted sites, to check they’re all suitable. 

Once the cycle hangars have been installed from early next year, people can then apply for a space.

The consultation runs until 29 October, and people can choose their location at www.cyclehangarswest.co.uk.


  1. Simple. Out of sight.

    Sites like Corner of pulteney road and North parade under the railway bridge where there are abandoned toilets.
    Get out of your cosy offices and have a wander around . You will find more appropriate places

  2. Please use a more attractive design than those installed so far, maybe like the hangars I saw in Edinburgh last week, with a curved lid and metal grilles at the ends,?
