Got one of these 2013.
Unsure if other boroughs offer them

Be quick though. Value about £350-£500 dependant of number of bikes. Asguard brand

Not in my area but cracking scheme. All local authorities should have something like these, even if they were heavily subsidised.

Waltham Forest are doing a similar scheme except it is for multi households and security may be an issue Worth investigating though

EDIT: In fact


Cycle lockers have been successfully introduced in other London Boroughs including Lambeth, Hackney and Southwark. Waltham Forest is in the process of working with our partner Cyclehoop to introduce the first locations in the borough.

I wish Neath Port Talbot Council did this?

Great idea,not, that's like asking your local council to whack £300 extra on your own council bill or IR to tax you more so that these could be subsidised plus a management overhead costs of 30% to manage this national project.

Great service, shame it's not provided all over. Heat added none the less.

Here's a question. Should this be means tested?



They're not for individual houses (as the HUKD picture suggests). It will be going on the road for all residents to use.

Applications now closed. Hopefully some at HUKD managed to apply.

these will probably be funded by the Government's Local Sustainable Transport Fund and not your council tax or a subsidy from the Inland Revenue

How would this work (looking at the OP's picture)? Are all residents given keys? How would you get your bike from behind if someone else has locked their bike in front?

Your answer makes it more daft, why employ more quangos and agency staff to administer more and more schemes. Any money used for a public good is a tax, no matter how you dress it up, if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, it is a duck. More schemes make public better, the question is affordability. Half of people money is for public sector already.

........sadly the corrupt nepotistic PC turds in my area's councils prefer to spend OUR money on themselves and their choice of "minorities" not everyone

Many years ago when I was 17 and paying the then poll tax whilst living at home I spoke to a council manager about them having to come out and fix a path 4 times. He said the same thing to me, don't know why you are so angry that they have been out 4 times it's not coming from your poll tax or income tax but comes from the EU. I told he where do you think that money comes from, it doesn't just appear in their bank account it's still us muppets that pay it, whether it's EU, council, government it still comes out of Taxes!!!

Exactly right, the money has to come out from somewhere, they come from EU wide governments who tax the people. However I have actually met some of these folks, typical attitude with saying, "never mind it is wasted, it is EU money, if we don't get the money, some other country get it and waste it."

My local railway station used to have those, the individual ones.
They were great, you could cycle to the station, didn't need a massive lock, your bike was dry and secure all day.
So, East Midlands trains removed them and replaced them with an open to the elements (rain/snow/thieves) version which is hardly used. I still cycle but have now had to purchase a crappy bike to use as the seat was stolen several times from my 'nice' bike and the brakes were vandalised.
