135558Photo #135558Due to recent encouragement to cycle instead of using public transport. Can we please look into having bike stands or sheds on the estates. I do not drive so do not own a car & my flat is too small to store 2 bikes indoors. Also I'm clinically vulnerable so need the exercise!! I'm sure there are people in similar circumstances. There is unused estate garden space so can be overlooked for security purposes & not take up any car parking space

Reason: Currently no facilities for cycling exist and the cycle lane stops forcing new cyclists to mix with traffic
Additional benefits: Connected cycle from North of Morden to Sutton.
