Cycle facilities to help get you cycling
There is a wide range of cycle parking dotted around Milton Keynes and the local area as well as public tool stations and commuter cycle facilities to enable more people to cycle. The main locations can be seen on our interactive map. If you haven’t got a bike, there are also lots of options to hire or buy one.
Cycle Tool Stations and Pumps
There are currently three locations in MK which provide air pumps and tool stations with workstands and basic tools for the public. These are free to use and easy to access at MK Central Station, Bletchley railway station and outside the Get Changed unit in CMK. To ensure these facilities are kept in tip-top condition, please report any issues to us using the contact page.
Cycle parking at train stations and coachway
Almost all of the train stations in Milton Keynes provide some form of free cycle parking and there are 10 covered cycle stands at MK Coachway. We recommend using good sold secure rated locks to secure your bicycle to the metal stands.

Cycle parking around MK
Standard cycle stands are located in most car parks in Central Milton Keynes and at local centres, leisure centres, places of interest and many schools. Two large, covered cycle parking areas with sheffield stands for 40 bikes are located on either side of the INTU shopping centre in CMK.
Milton Keynes has 87 Streetpods, which are free to use, installed across the city centre including Lloyds Court, the Point, MK Gallery, in the wider Theatre District, and at Xscape, The Library and Midsummer Place.
The pods are ‘Sold Secure Diamond-Rated’ – the highest level of bicycle security available in the UK. Each pod can hold two bikes in a ’high-low’ design to avoid handlebar clashes. Each front wheel fits neatly into a secure shell made from recycled materials that contains a ring of reinforced solid steel, and the back wheel and frame can be additionally secured though the steel ring using the cyclist’s own D-lock. We recommend securing your bike with a heavy-duty ‘Sold Secure’ rated D-lock – or even two locks – where possible.
