Report an abandoned bike

You can report a bike that has been abandoned on our streets or at our public bike stands. 
A bike is considered abandoned if it has not moved for a long time or is not in a roadworthy condition - where it has damaged or rusted parts; or is missing key components like wheels, a chain, or saddle. 

Report an abandoned bike using the Love Clean Streets app

Alternatively you can also report an abandoned bike by email to [email protected]. Please provide as much information as possible to help us locate the bike and tell us why you think it is abandoned.  

There are different ways to report a dockless hire bike causing an obstruction.
