[Image taken 8.4.09] B&Q, Old Kent Road, London. [NOTE: No streetview at this location.] Since 19 June 2006 I've been lobbying B & Q and the managing agents of the site to get cycle parking put in outside B&Q. There's a clear need - there was always at least one other bike, usually several, attached to the railings surrounding the trolley area. Today, a nice surprise - cycle parking! There are two lots of 'toast racks' - one with 3 uprights, accommodating 6 bikes, one with 2, accommodating 4 bikes. However, had I approached from the road entrance I wouldn't have seen the racks. There are no signs and they are a long way from the entrance. It's not all bad news though. The image shows the existence of posts which are presumably intended to protect the bikes from motor vehicles while they are being parked or making some other manoeuvre next to the racks. Other images this B&Q: #178867, #178868, #178869. Comparison with an example of good practice at the B&Q in Cambridge: #178871. Image of unusable racks at the nearby Bike Hut: #178870.
