Walking and cycling

Find out more about walking and cycling to help tackle climate change

Why should I start walking and cycling more?

Roughly 18% of UK carbon on the road comes from journeys between 0-5 miles. If you often travel between 0 and 5 miles by car, walking and cycling are good alternative options for these short journeys. For example, choose to walk your kids to school or encourage them to cycle instead of giving them a lift.

If you live within 5 miles or so from your work, then try walking or cycling to get to work. Even if initially you only do so a few days a week, ultimately these small actions add up.

Walking and cycling will also improve your general health, in addition to reducing your carbon footprint. Studies have shown that those who regularly walk and cycle on average live longer, healthier lives than those who do not regularly walk or cycle.

Norfolk County Council have some great resources available, with useful ways to get you walking and cycling more.

Secure cycle storage

A pilot secure cycle storage scheme is available at Baker Lane, designed to provide lockable covered storage for up to 6 cycles. This is a trial scheme as part of our wider Active and Clean Connectivity programme for King’s Lynn to encourage cycling as a way to access the town.

How to apply

  • Fill in the application form with your details
  • If all spaces are full, you will be added to the waiting list

Apply for the secure cycle storage scheme


If a space is available, our team will contact you to offer you the space. They will send you instructions on how to pay for your space and will send you a key in the post once your payment is received. Our team will only be in touch when a space becomes available.

Please note that some of our waiting lists are very long and it may be some time before we get in touch, but rest assured, we will contact you.


  • A refundable deposit of £25 is required for a key, this will be refunded upon return of your key. No key = no refund!
  • Keys must be paid for in advance
  • Keys will be posted to the postal address you supply to us
  • 1 key per person, 1 cycle storage space per person
  • If it is clear you have not accessed the secure storage within 14 days of payment being received, your space will be allocated to somebody else
  • In the event of losing your key, you must notify us immediately
  • Replacement keys cost an additional £25. You can not use your original key deposit to cover the cost of a replacement key
  • Passing your key to another individual is a violation of our terms and conditions. This discredits our fair waiting list system as well as putting the safety and security of other users at risk. Failure to comply with this rule will result in the immediate cancellation of your space as well as a ban from using the service
  • Although the storage unit is secure, we advise you to use a lock for your bicycle while it is in situ

Please note we are not responsible for keys that have been lost in the post.
