My employer is moving us to a office in September that has no cycle parking facilities on Fenchurch Ave. I’ve had a bike stolen in the past and the lack of secure parking will stop me cycling in.

Gym, yoga studio in plough court, lots of bicycles chained to lamp post etc in this area

This would be a good opportunity for employers and patients/customers

Lots of space here and no cycle parking anywhere nearby. Real cycle parking would encourage people not to lock to private fences.

There is a large gym on Cannon Street opposite the station here and nowhere close to park your bike when you need to be in and out in a hurry and back to work

Cycle parking needed here.

Needed: cycle parking for non TfL hire scheme bicycles (there is a TfL docking station here). Nearby stands are always full.

There have been thefts from Carmelite Street, this gets low pedestrian traffic whereas John Carpenter Street is well populated and has 2 major office entrances. JC Street has ample space as half the road is closed to vehicles and would … [more]

Cycle parking needed here.

Currently there are 6 Sheffield stands on Carmelite Street. However is it not atypical for these to have 4 bikes tied up at one time, and this number grows exponentially in the summer when the whole of the building is surrounded by bikes … [more]

There are never enough bike racks in this part of the City. There is plenty of Soace in Devonshire Sq area for more

Barts Hospital badly needs cycle stands in the central square, which has been cleared of vehicles.

Bikes on a ledge indicate lack of secure, easily-accessible cycle parking

I work near Monument station for Lloyd's Bank and we are all moving to 10 Gresham St by end of the year. 20 of us currently park in our office car park but this won't be available in our new office. The bike racks are always full so it … [more]


These cycle stands are always full, more stands are needed on both sides of the street

There are many offices in this area and very little space to lock bikes - the nearest spaces are on Bouverie street and along the embankment, and they are both often full. Many bikes locked to inappropriate street furniture - lampposts and … [more]

Lots of cycle parking needed here

There are some cycle stands but they are frequently full.

Couldn't find any stands anywhere in St Paul's churchyard one night last week. Stands needed on Maria lane too.

This is way oversubscribed. Up to 8 bikes trying to use stands designed for a maximum of 4. A on-street car parking space should be given up for this - much more efficient use of space.

10 - 15 spaces needed

Ther is almost no public cycle parking available in the City apart from on London Wall. Some urgently needd near Minster Court.

There is nowhere suitable to park bikes here outside Latham and Watkins, 99 Bishopgate. There's a huge public pavement there, loads of space, and a big boris bike rack. How about some provisionfor the thousands of workers who cycle nearby.

There seems to be no parking in the area around Cannon Street Station

Thsi office building has no cycle spaces free for new staff and Appold Street spaces are always full by 9am. The temporary stand provided by Hackney Coucil on Worship St is oversubscribed. The landlords of the offices in this area need to … [more]

There is almost no cycle parking available around Moorgate. The little there is on London Wall is over-crowded and not secure enough.

Near cafés

Took me 10 minutes last night to find parking near St Pauls!

Not enough cycle parking at Waterloo station

As many stands as possible.

The number of existing stands is insufficient for the amount of bikes in the ares

Always a lack of storage around here. Perhaps a secure facility such as this one ( could be incorportaed into the re-development of St Botolph's, currently proposed by LBC.

10 plus

middle street and adjoining alleyways have no stands at all, and very few other structures to lock a bike to.

Out Side the Old Bailey so people doing Jury service can cycle to court.

Cycle parking needed at Monument. Perhaps just use the yellow-lined area just to the right of this picture and convert that to on-street cycle parking.

Smithfield market and area towards Farringdon tube is poorly served by bike parking facilities. Bikes are parked in places that obstruct pedestrians.

The large M&S has absolutely no cycle parking. I will do my shopping somewhere else until this is fixed.

Museum of London

A stylish single speed bike (on the freewheel cog) it locked up textbook style with the extension cable looped around the rack - a feat only practical on this type of stand when there are no other bikes alongside.

The cycle racks in the area are all taken on a daily basis.

need about 10 stands here

at least 5 stands needed here. Lots of space.

Cycle parking needed here, lots of space for it.

Need some parking in this area. at least 10 stands.

no cycle parking, lots of space

no cycle parking anywhere around here, lots of space for it.

Rather disappointing cycle racks for students at the Guildhall School of Drama. Note that many of the bikes seem to have red seat covers.

6 stands

Two bikes parked in a jolly fashion one on top of the other. But it seems that the authorities in this area are losing patience with this sort of thing as there are lots of posts and railings with No Bikes signs.

This is an area with a large number of shops and tall office buildings, yet lacks cycle parking. This has led to many people parking their bikes on the railings of the steps down in a privately owned but publicly accessible space there.

In new street square please!

In new street square please!

At least 4 stands. There are usually bikes chained to car parking signs

I went to a restaurant near St Pauls the other day, but it was so difficult to find cycle parking that I don't think I shall go back.

There has been considerable new office development in the area around New Street Square, Fetter Lane and Rolls Buildings. These offices accomodate several thousand people, and parking facilities have not kept pace with the growth in … [more]

There is no cycle parking provision on the south side of Smithfield Market near the Tesco Express Smithfield

St. Paul's Cathedral Area can do with more bike parking because going there and not finding a place to lock discourages from cycling into the city.

At the underground carparks at the Barbican centre, as this location is more secure and protected from the weather than the existing facilities (recently improved) on Silk St.

no parking here currently

Any number of stands would be a good start as there's nowhere to lock a bike up in the Churchyard and surrounding area - yet there's the cathedral and lots of shops and cafes in the area so where does one leave one's bike when going to … [more]

It's absurd that there are no parking facilities outside tesco. I have to tie to a lampost, but then again this is never going to be acted on by the Council.

There is a parking stand but the number is too small, it is always busy.

Too few stands

not enough cycle parking in Cheapside - worth checking if the new parking being created will be sufficient.

multiple bike stands for office workers


Cycle provision is full. No spaces available

This street is a dead end, perfect for parking!

The City of London's approach to cyclists appears to me to be totally unacceptable: do we mar their image?

This is opposite a Sainsbury's and near a number of great sandwich shops, and yet there's no bike parking on this side of High Holborn. Popping into this Sainsbury's to pick something up means crossing the street to lock up, and then … [more]

Virtually no on-street cycle stands in this area of the City, despite lots of offices nearby. Very hard for office visitors to park cycles.

Lots of offices nearby with no cycle visitor parking, including Tower 42.

10 stands, please.

10 stands please.

very poor provision at this popular spot, stands are always full

there are some stands here but they fill up every day

Plenty of spaces on London Wall, but nothing on this side of the road, outside New Look and The Globe pub.

There is plenty of space in the area marked

There are stands there already, but they are always full. Lots more would be nice.

20 stands

there's no parking at all around there, and the pavements are plenty wide enough
