Cycle parking update

Our cycle parking team now manages most of the cycle storage units located on the highway, including all units that were previously managed by CycleHoop rentals. A limited number of units are still managed on our behalf by Falco Rentals, but we are working to bring these units in-house by early 2023.

Please note that demand for secure cycle parking is high. We are accelerating the roll-out of new secure storage units, with 540 new secure spaces planned between August 2022 and April 2023. We will consult locally on these locations prior to installing any new units.

If you would like secure cycle storage near where you live, please register an interest via the button below. By registering, you will be automatically be added to waiting lists for local storage and we’ll use the information to help inform us where new storage is needed most.

Based on where you live, we will try and find you a space within your desired walking distance. Registering an interest will also help us identify additional locations where storage is needed and to allocate the spaces once they’re created.

How it works

The council now manages secure cycle storage on the highway and across its housing estates in-house, so the way in which residents rent spaces for their bikes has changed.

  • to keep the service sustainable, the council needs to charge an annual fee for renting a bike storage space, this cost is £40 per year (less than 80p per week)
  • the fee covers the cost of providing the service and maintain the storage
  • a 25% discount is offered to Westminster City Council housing tenants for units located on their estate, subject to proof of Council tenancy
  • a refundable £25 key deposit will be required for new applications to cover the loss of keys

There is a limited number of exceptions where storage is located in gates housing estates. If you live on a gated estate, please contact your estate manager to access your storage.

Westminster Wheels maintenance scheme

The council is collaborating with Westminster Wheels (in partnership with Groundwork and Cycle Confident), which helps young Westminster residents who are not in education or employment to gain the skills and experience to become qualified bicycle mechanics.

As part of a rental subscription, our cycle storage customers can get a Bike Check Over service at only £35 (compared to £90 average cost in other bike shops) by a trained Westminster Wheels mechanic at their Church Street shop. In using this service, you’ll be supporting a valuable community scheme.

The Bicycle Check Over service includes brakes and gears adjustment, nuts and bolts checked and tightened, and ensuring the road worthiness and safety of the bike.

Please note that if changes to parts are needed, labour and parts would be at an additional cost.
