Westminster or Paddington storage

Postby FuBiking » 29 Jun 2020, 12:50am

Hi everyone, I got a bike as a present but don’t have any storage where I live (Westminster) I don’t wanna leave it outside as it would be nicked in a heartbeat I suppose. My question, I live near Paddington station and I know there is storage. Is it possible for me to store my bike there over night all year round. Does it cost something? Or can I just leave it there...or any other idea? Any help very much appreciated. Many thx in advance

I've no idea but you could try phoning them on 03457 11 41 41 - open station parking is often rather vulnerable, because thieves assume it's a safe bet that the rider won't be back for hours, but a central London terminal might be watched by security workers more closely than an hourly-served station out in the sticks.

QPark used to offer bicycle parking in some central London car parks but I doubt it's cheap. https://www.spokesafe.com/locations/ makes it look like it might be changing.
