Cyclist End of Trip Facilities
Employees who choose to cycle to work greatly appreciate secure bike parking facilities.
These may range from outdoor bike racks to indoor, locked bike rooms or cages. The ideal is to also provide showers, change rooms and lockers, as a support for those cycling to work. In the least, a sink and mirror in a space with a lock allows cyclists to freshen up and transition to work mode.
While the best bicycle parking facilities provide restricted access and weather protection, if you are looking to install freestanding bike racks intended for short-term parking, the principles of good rack design ensure bikes remain upright and the rack is simple in design and the function is obvious. Racks should be near the entrance of the destination, with steady flows of pedestrians or be visible through windows to provide additional security.
