Richmond Bikehangars Consultation 2022 (Phase 3)

Closes 20 Dec 2022

Opened 21 Nov 2022

Overview

Richmond Council is seeking views on the introduction of additional bikehangars throughout the borough. There are currently 27 bikehangars in Richmond, all of which are fully occupied with waiting lists for spaces. The introduction of additional bikehangars will help to alleviate some of the demand for the existing units while also improving geographic coverage. 

What is a bikehangar?

A bikehangar is an on-street cycle parking apparatus that securely houses six bicycles and takes up the space of about half of a car parking bay. Bikehangars can only be accessed by registered users. They have a hydraulic opening mechanism that keeps noise to a minimum when the hangars are opened or closed.

Bikehangars are most commonly located within existing on-street car parking bays, but some are also placed on pavements where there is space to accommodate the bikehangar without impacting on pedestrian accessibility.

Bikehangars enable more residents to cycle, more often, by providing a safe and accessible location to store their bicycle. Supporting cycling is key to improving local air quality and forms a key part of Richmond’s Climate Change and Sustainability Strategy.

 

 

 

Why have these locations been chosen?

Locations for bikehangars are driven by resident requests, primarily via the request form on the Richmond Council website. The locations represent a mix of the most requested streets and streets in areas where there are no other bikehangars nearby.

How do I access a bikehangar?

Access to each bikehangar is restricted to members. Membership is managed by CycleHoop, who also manufacture the bikehangars.

Please note each bikehangar user is required to pay a refundable deposit and an annual subscription to the supplier (currently £72), which covers administration, maintenance and any required repairs to the bikehangar.
