Cycle Parking

Ealing Council have expressed an interest in placing a number of Bikehangars - covered cycle stands - throughout the borough, but they want to find out where they are needed. They are interested in hearing about locations on streets or on private or commercial land. Bikehangars are likely to be installed where demand is greatest and your response will help identify possible locations. If interested please fill in the form here. Or you can email Ealing Council on This is also the address to contact the council if you have any other ideas for cycle improvements in Ealing - whether it's a location for a cycle stand, opening up a one-way street to two-way cycle flow, or installing a dedicated cycle lane the transport department wants to hear from you.

Police Appeal to Cyclists in Search for Missing Girl

Police are appealing for a number of cyclists seen on the Grand Union canal at about the same time as a local missing girl, Alice Gross, to get in touch.

Grainy CCTV footage shows three cyclists passing the Trumpers Way Canal Bridge in Hanwell at 4.23pm on Thursday 28th August, before two more cyclists pass under the canal bridge moments later.

More details on the link below. If you think you can help, even it's to say you were on the tow path that day but saw nothing then please call 101 to talk to the police.

Brentford Festival

It’s a fun event – last year you could try slacklining – so of course we’ll have a stall. Dr. Bike will also be on hand, so bring your bicycle to get it checked over.  When: Sunday 7th September from 12noon to 6pm.

Cycle Film Rained Off

An outdoor screening of the cycling movie, Bicycle Dreams was cancelled tonight due to rain. Ealing BID (Business Improvement District) planned to screen the movie on the roof of Springbridge Road car park this evening (26th August) at dusk, but cancelled the event at lunchtime when rain threatened to soak the audience. The film was intended to start the debate on a major cycling event in Ealing next year. Ealing BID organised the screening in partnership with Rocket Sports Management,  a local sports management company co-founded by Elton John, that manages Olympic gold medal-winning cyclists Geraint Thomas and Laura Trott, along with a host of other top cyclists. Hopefully tonight's nightmare for the organisers will turn into a dream event next year. Watch this space...
