Cycle Parking In Canary Wharf

I've seen the odd thread on here about Canary Wharf, but nothing recently. I've been offered a job there with a company that doesn't have secure facilities for bicycles. Thus I was just hoping to get an idea of what the facilities are like for locking up bikes. Is there a lot of theft? Are there any covered racks or would my bike be open to the elements? Anything else I should know.

I'd be riding up from South of the river, probably taking in the walk through the Greenwich tunnel - assuming I take the job of course.

    I think there's an underground car park you can lock you bike there

    there are loads of places to park bikes above ground but no cctv coverage (well there wasn't when mine got nicked a couple years back)

    Secure parking under Canada Sq, but never had cause to use it as have racks in car park under offices

    Above ground nothing covered

    Not strictly true - there are public cycle racks next to the DLR station which are under the bridge that the DLR runs over on North Colonnade (no.28 on the linked map above). Still open to the wind, but should be covered from rain unless there is a gale blowing.

    Can't comment on security as I too have secured underground racks in the staff car park, but its a pretty busy place, so provided you didn't leave it there overnight would have thought it'd be ok.
