Cycling offers a quick, convenient, healthy and affordable way to travel around. Cycling also doesn't create any pollution.

Cycling is ideal for shorter journeys, taking you from door to door quicker than the car or bus.

Sutton has an extensive network of signed cycle routes. They follow:

  • quieter roads
  • traffic-free paths
  • through parks
  • along the river Wandle

Cycle parking stands

You can find cycle parking in town centres and at key destinations such as:

  • stations
  • leisure centres and
  • schools

Many employers also provide secure cycle shelters.

We provide shelters in residential estates or flats, where there is no secure cycle parking.

Old bikes can be recycled, or even reused, at the Kimpton Way reuse and recycle site.

Promoting Cycling in Sutton

We recognise the need to reduce the amount of private car use and to promote active travel. We're working with partners including TfL to increase the proportion of journeys using active modes and public transport.

Our Sustainable Transport Strategy (PDF) includes actions to encourage cycling in the borough.
