London boroughs including Ealing making it difficult for cyclists to get secure cycle hangars

London cyclists including those in Ealing are finding it difficult to secure a cycle hangar with a staggering 60,200 people across London on a waiting list and only 8,500 spaces created since 2022, a new report from Clean Cities Campaign has found.

In Labour-run Ealing alone, the current waiting list is 2,605 and there are 6.29 requests per each available space. Ealing also has one of the lowest number of secure cycle spaces per 10,000 of the population with just 11 spaces compared to neighbouring borough Hammersmith & Fulham with 18, Brent with 23 and Richmond with 16.

Clean Cities Campaign

Councillor Gary Malcolm, leader of Ealing Liberal Democrats is calling on Ealing council to increase hangars across the borough. He told EALING.NEWS: “Ealing Council should be promoting more of these as they are only installing a few and many people have a long wait to get one.”

Speaking to EALING.NEWS, Oliver Lord, head of UK at Clean Cities Campaign said: “It’s impressive that Ealing has one of the lowest cost cycle spaces in London but this is undermined by a waiting list that is way too long. Our report shows just a third of demand for cycle parking in Ealing is expected to be met by 2026, which is why we are calling on the council to increase its ambition and to end the backlog.”
