The on-street cycle hangar replaces one car space with secure, covered storage for six cycles.
In streets with narrow pavements, a four-cycle unit can be positioned perpendicular to the pavement. Safe access to the hangar is provided via a bollard (as in Figure 1 below) or by standing two units face-to-face (Figure 2).
Example: Regent Street in East Oxford
Note: The Google Streetview camera is positioned here at 15 Regent St. This is not a suggestion that hangars should be sited at 15 Regent Street.
The pavement on the south side of Regent Street might be too narrow to provide access to the hangar.
A four-cycle hangar provides an alternative, as sketched below.
