I’m going to do a speed awareness course in the area. I know there are Infinity and J&S stores that provide parking. But since I have no money to buy stuff from them, and the course takes 4 hours, that would be a bit of a dick move. Any other free parking in the area.
You really don’t want to park in front of these. They are notoriously a target for bike thieves. It’s safer at the ace.
I usually try and park up in one of the quieter residential roads to the rear of Infinity or J&S and walk. Or I used to. I don’t feel hugely comfortable leaving my bike anywhere outside of a locked garage with a couple of attack rottweilers in London these days.
FYI, you can park free of charge in any of the residential bays or pay and display bays in the Borough https://www.ealing.gov.uk/info/201178/parking/1289/motorcycle_parking?CookiesAccepted=1
Park at ace and get bus over
Where’s the course because the one I’ve been on isn’t at Hanger Lane it’s in West Ealing/Ealing by the fire station.
Good to know if they have another option.
If it’s west Ealing you can leave it at mine.
I did mine there in November. You can park on the grounds of the hotel. It’s quite well hidden. I parked right outside the entrance just let the reception know

That would almost defeat the purpose of taking the bike, though.

Appreciate the offer, but that’s a tad too far.

Crowne Plaza Hotel, literally next door to Infinity Motorcycles.

Is the main entrance at the back? There seems to be parking both front and back. And according to the venue details parking is £4, although it specifically says car.
I would just call the crown plaza and ask if you can park your motorbike there. If they make a fuss then tell them you’re visiting a guest.
Out front behind the rail they have. I literally rode along the little path for pedestrians to get into it. Double checked with them and they said it was fine. Chained it and went in.
The infinity has ground anchors at the back of it. I doubt anybody would say anything if you left your bike there.
Cheers, guys. Talked to the reception at the hotel, and they told me to just park it next to the entrance.
