What is a bike hanger?

A bike hangar is a covered, lockable and secure pod which sits on the road. It takes up about the same amount of space as a parked car and it can hold 6 bikes securely and provides people, without access to store a bike at home, with a secure and convenient way to park their bike, so they can ride a bike more easily and reduce the need for rely on motorised transport.

There is a small annual rental charge to hire a space in a bike hangar, part of a membership renewable each year.

NB: This scheme has currently only been delivered in Bristol, funded by Bristol City Council. No plans for further bike hangars present.

Future funding

Bristol City Council currently doesn’t have any additional funding available to deliver any more sites around the city than those already announced. The budget available for on-street cycle hangars has now been fully allocated.

In the meantime, Travelwest is keeping a list of the people who have already contacted the Council either to inquire about having a cycle hangar installed in their neighbourhood, or about the second round of applications.

Register your interest

Whilst there is currently no funding to roll out more cycle hangars. We are keeping a list of the people who have already contacted the Council either to inquire about having a cycle hangar installed in their neighbourhood, or about the second round of applications.

When a source of further funding has been identified we will contact everyone on this list to advise them of future opportunities to apply for a cycle hangar.

If those people have also requested to be associated with one of the sites that are now in operation, we will also keep them informed about any news for that particular cycle hangar, such as vacancies.

We will send out an update e-mail to keep everyone informed about any news on the scheme overall.
