- Convenient, secure and affordable bicycle storage outside homes.
- Reduce bicycle theft
Secure Cycle Parking - residential streets
Convenient and secure bicycle parking needs to be provided in residential areas where people have no convenient way of storing bicycles.
In London, councils have begun to install secure parking facilities (pictured), similar to those found in the Netherlands. Hackney, Lewisham, Brixton, Lambeth, Camden, Haringey, Southwark and Wandsworth are amongst those councils installing secure bicycle parking in residential streets. Edinburgh, Leeds, Manchester, Southampton, Bristol and Dublin have also begun installing secure residential bike storage. Cardiff, with its high proportion of terraced housing and flats needs to do the same.
People cannot cycle if they do not have a secure and convenient place to store their bicycles at home.
Please sign our petition, asking cardiff council to begin to offer citizens secure parking outside their/our homes.
