How to get parking for your bike?
Request a Bikehangar
Bikehangars provide a good solution for securing your bike, particularly when there isn’t room inside your home. Haringey Council offers these to local residents although supply is not meeting demand. We have created a guide on how to request one for your neighbourhood.
Request a Sheffield stand
Sheffield stands provide an invaluable aid when you’re looking to lock your bike when you’re popping into a shop, local library, doctors or sports ground. Haringey Council have instructions on the below link.
How can I increase the security of my treasured bicycle?
Register your bike
The Metropolitan Police have some handy advice on how to reduce the chance of your bike being stolen. Among the advice is adding your bike’s details to BikeRegister which means that if your bike is located after being stolen, the police will know who to return it to. You will find bike marking events happening in London at various times.
Where can you find cycle routes around London?
Transport for London maps
Transport for London has an online map that will help you find current and proposed cycle routes across London, as well as Santander Cycle docking stations across London.
How can I increase my own or my child's confidence on a bike?
Cycle training in Haringey
Whilst many already know how to ride a bike, Cycle Confidence training can help you cycle more confidently and assertively around the borough and the city and is free to Haringey residents.
How can I report problems with our roads or cycling infrastructure?
Low Traffic Neighbourhoods (LTNs)
Report interference with the LTN cameras
Haringey Council has installed enforcement camera to help ensure that motorists respect restrictions on car use. Unfortunately some people have been vandalising cameras and planters so they’re not working properly.
If you find this is the case, please report to the relevant Haringey Council email address.
- Report damage to, or the movement of, LTN planters
- Report damage to, or the movement of, LTN cameras
