Cycle parking, repair stations and maintenance
Whether you’re using your own ride or a dockless bicycle, always choose a responsible spot to park up. Do not block footways as this can make it difficult for other pedestrians, especially those with mobility problems, to get around.
Acceptable places to park include: in a designated cycle parking area, by the kerbside providing adequate room is left to get round the bike.
In 2016 we introduced Cyclehoop bike hangers on a number of streets to allow residents to hire a space to store their bicycle. Each hanger can store up to 6 bicycles.
You can find cycle stands at a number of locations across the borough. Go to Brent’s area on Urban Cycle Parking to find your nearest cycle parking or to suggest a new location.
To request a bike hanger near you please email Highways&Infrastructure@brent.gov.uk and include your name and address.
It’s important to maintain your bike to ensure that it has a long life and is safe. Have your bike serviced once a year. Most bike shops offer bike servicing and you can usually pick up your bike the same day.
