Helping San Francisco Build More (and better) Bike Parking
SF Bicycle Coalition – 7/16/14
From on-street bike racks, bike corrals, and secure indoor bike parking, the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition is leading the charge in making sure you have a safe, convenient space to lock your bike at home, at your office and when you’re out on the town. We work closely with the City to provide free on-street bike racks and corrals for businesses, help employees and building managers understand and use the employee bike access bill, and provide bike parking consultations to our business members. And now that the City’s bike parking requirements for new buildings is in effect, we see a great opportunity to engage architects, designers, and developers to make sure they’re designing innovative, convenient, and attractive bike parking spaces.
