London bicycle storage

I will be visiting London twice in a six-twelve month period. Rather than ship my bike from/to the USA for each trip, I had rather place it in storage in London between trips. Does anyone have any suggestions where I can store my bike? Thanks.

You can hire storage units from companies like Big Yellow.

Another option might be to join the warm showers list (a hospitality list for touring cyclists), then try to contact members around London. Offer a fee for the storage, as this may inconvenience the host, as compared to just an overnite stay of a guest. Google: Warm showers list.

Perhaps post your request to London area cycle clubs (I don't know of any, others may, or perhaps Google).

With luck you might also gain some riding partners as well.
