LCC, the London Cycling Campaign have just sent me this:
In Lambeth, the council have recently rolled out 40, Dutch made, on-street bike lockers. The lockers offer a secure option for people to park their bike. They can store 6 bicycles, and only take up the space of half a car parking bay.
Lewisham Council have expressed a real interest in placing a number of Bikehangars throughout the borough, but they want to find out where they are needed.
Do you want a Bikehangar near you? Then let Lewisham Council know where. They are interested in hearing about locations on-street or on private commercial land.
REQUEST A BIKEHANGAR NEAR YOU
Bikehangars are likely to be installed where demand is greatest and your response will help identify possible locations. Please ensure that you reply by the 27th September 2013, when the public consultation is due to close.
Do you know anyone else who would like a Bikehangar near them? We would like to hear from them too, so please forward this email to as many Lewisham cyclists as possible. Thank you!

Knowing that the editor of this blog has recently had a bike stolen from the estate and having recently recuperated and returned a stolen bike to a Crossfields resident, I know that there may be other people interested in some form of secure outdoor bike locking. I've seen these in Wandsworth and they may be of use to plenty of others on the estate.
If you'd like a safe place to lock your bike, use this address to nominate a place (you don't have to be an LCC member to request adequate cycle facilities) click HERE.
A couple of old faces on this Deptford Market song - with an in-depth review of Westfield shopping centre at the end.
Just a couple of shots around the estate this morning showing how the council contractors and the council use cycle lanes. The van behind is a Lewisham council one.
