9.            Cycle Parking



Cycle Parking is about convenience. The majority of the cycle parking in Dorking is more often than not hidden, inconveniently sited (in some cases adjacent to car parks) and uncovered.

Cycle parking exists at both the leisure centre and council offices but, although conveniently sited close to the main entrances, is uncovered. Cycle parking at the Post Office is around the side, well hidden with no signs to direct users and is uncovered. There is no parking at either Sainsburys or Waitrose, although cyclists regularly park cycles in front of both (usually under cover). Cycle parking at Dorking Station satisfies location, convenience and protection, but is now, probably, too small.

So, whilst dedicated parking sits unused




Cyclists park where it's convenient!
