How you travel

Find out ways to reduce your carbon emissions by making some small changes to how you travel.


Whether you are an experienced cyclist or have never cycled in your life, there is support to get you cycling in Westminster.

We offer cycle training for adults and children, whether you are a resident, a commuter or even a visitor to Westminster. We also offer training on how to keep your bike well maintained.

There are also lots of places you can hire a bike through the Santander Cycle Hire scheme run by TfL. We are working with TfL to expand this scheme into the Harrow Road and Kensal Rise areas.

We are building up a network of sign plated cycle routes. These are designed to cater to both experienced and inexperienced riders. We are also expanding our cycle routes.

We are at an early stage of providing on-street residential cycle hangars, but this will take some time to grow. If you own your own bike and have no internal storage at home you can apply for a place in one of these units. However, please be patient as we build up this provision.

As a bike owner, and especially if you live around Church Street and Maida Vale, you can use our Westminster Wheels service to get your bike checked over for just £45. You can also donate your old bike to Westminster Wheels. Finally, you can get basic repairs done for free on your bike by visiting one of the Dr Bike pop-up events held all year round on key cycle routes across London.
