Cycling grows everywhere
Parking provision is a growing need
Elephant paths indicate where to provide service
Simple white lines may help
On street racks are already more infrastructural
Automated parking systems are a next option
Temporary bicycle parking systems help for the time being
parking buildings are a big step forward
underground facilities are the next level
I would like to concentrate on
- cost efficient
- double or triple use
of the used space
1. Prepare in time for bicycle parking investment
2. Do not make the same mistakes as happened with car parking
3. Make a long term anual budget available
4. Challenge your politician to make the urban space attractive
5. Make your signatory multi-functional design for your city
6. Challenge bicycle parking producers to also be creative
In Conclusion
