- Garages or sheds.
- Internal private spaces, such as dedicated spaces in a utility room.
- External or internal communal cycle stores.
- Proprietary systems.
Communal cycle storage should meet the following criteria:
- Spaces should be in racks that are covered overhead, and the racks should be fixed to a permanent structure (such as a building or hardstanding).
- Where the location is external to the home, access from the bike storage area to a pedestrian or cycle route is not permitted through the home.
The distance between each cycle rack and surrounding obstructions (e.g. walls) should allows for bikes to be easily stored and accessed.
Cycle racks must be a minimum of:
- 2m long × 0.75m wide for one bike.
- 2m long × 1.5m wide for two bikes.
- 2m long × 2.5m wide for four bikes.
- If hanging systems or proprietary systems are provided, the space requirements are flexible but the system must allow each cycle to be removed independently.
