Bike Parking

See this map of downtown Kingston bike racks! In summer 2022, KCAT completed a Bicycle Parking Audit of the Kingston Downtown Business Improvement Area (DBIA), mapping all bike racks. See findings and recommendations here.

Centrally located on Princess Street between King and Ontario streets, a highly secure docking station with capacity for 18 bikes was recently installed in spring 2023. The bike racks are distributed and implemented by Urban Racks and work with Bikeep, an app that enables users to find parking, lock their bike, release their bike, and more. To start enjoying the secure docking station, download the Bikeep app.

Cycle Kingston runs Bicycle Valet Kingston, a not-for-profit service that hires individuals in need of employment to support a secure bike parking service during events. With BVK, cyclists can safely check-in their bicycles for free! BVK can be hired for events.
