Answered By: 
The Mayor

There is a total of 4,609 cycle racks provided by TfL on the TLRN, providing 9,214 cycle parking spaces.  Provision on the TLRN will be increased as part of the Cycle Superhighway, Quietway, Grid and Mini-Holland programmes. 

In addition, there are 21,566 cycle parking spaces at stations in London.  This figure is from an audit carried out in July 2015 and includes some cycle parking provided by train operating companies and boroughs, depending on the land ownership at each station. TfL is currently analysing the data from this audit to determine which stations would benefit most from increased cycle parking.

TfL's Cycle Parking Programme also provided 18,485* new cycle parking spaces across London in 2014/15 by funding new cycle parking at stations, in schools, through borough LIPs and the Borough Cycling Programme. TfL is working with the London Cycling Campaign (LCC) to develop the website, which will map the locations of all TfL cycle parking spaces
