Cycling parking on Kynaston Road

Hackney Council is committed to promoting cycling as an alternative to private car use. The number of cyclists in Hackney continues to grow at a significant rate and the Council regularly receive requests from residents and businesses across the borough asking for more secure cycle parking stands. 

In some locations the Council has been trialing 'car bike ports'. These are temporary cycle parking facilities that hold up to 10 bikes. They are trialed for up to 8 weeks to see if they are used by cyclists, and if demand is high, then permanent cycle parking facilities will be proposed. The full details are

There is currently a temporary car bike port outside 55 Kynaston Road. Let us know your views! Is more cycle parking needed in this location? Do you have any other areas in Stoke Newington where more cycle parking would be useful? We look forward to hearing from you.

  1. thought it was something like a bike park , haven't seen one bike in it yet . residents are paying for parking permits so i don't see why cyclists should take space where cars are paying for the priviledge. where cyclists do not.
