How bikehangars work
What are bikehangars?
- Bikehangars are specially designed secure storage units for bikes.
- They are installed onto streets, with the unit bolted onto the kerb.
- Each hangar holds up to six bikes.
- The bikehangar takes up half a standard car parking space.
How does renting a space in a bikehangar work?
If you renting a space, you will share a bikehangar with five other people.
Only the six residents will have keys for the bikehangar.
You may be able to rent more than one space. But, if six or more people request a space, each one will be offered a space first.
Will my bike be safe in a bikehangar?
The bikehangars offer an excellent level of security.
If possible, we will place them in areas where they are seen by lots of people.
To increase security, we recommend locking your bike in the bikehangar.
You will need to ask your insurance company if your bike is covered while stored in a bikehangar.
How much does a bikehangar space cost?
Each bikehangar space costs £60 a year to rent including VAT (equal to £5 a month), plus a £25 returnable key deposit.
