King’s Cross loves bikes!
King’s Cross was recently awarded Club Peloton baton as the UK’s most cycle friendly development!
The streets here are designed to be safer for bikes, with plenty of on-street cycle parking. The bike interchange between King’s Cross and St Pancras stations is at Evans Cycles, making bike parking at the stations easy and secure.

Santander Cycles now available at King’s Cross
There are now two Santander Cycle docking stations with over 50 bikes, plus a Brompton bike docking station coming soon. The Santander bikes are located on Goods Way (next to the zebra crossing) and Handyside Street (next to the Platform theatre). While the Brompton bikes can soon be found outside 6 Pancras Square.
Santander Cycles is London’s self-service, bike-sharing scheme for short journeys. You can hire a bike from as little as £2. Simply go to any docking station with your bank card and touch the screen to get started. There’s no need to book – hire a bike, ride it where you like, then return it to any docking station.
Once launched, hiring a Brompton Bike is going to be equally easy, simply sign up online and reserve a bike via web, SMS or app. Punch your unique code into the dock, unfold your bike, and away you go! Bikes can be folded and taken on Tubes, trains and buses.
Free bike MOTs!
We’re offering a free monthly Dr Bike checks to anyone who lives, works or studies at King’s Cross. The service is provided by the London Cycling Campaign and is available once a month at Battle Bridge Place, just outside the station. As well as checking your bike, the team can provide general advice on cycling and route finding in London. Dates and details can be found here.
