3 rules of Simple Bike Parking
- Right Rack – The user must be able to lock their bike frame to it.
- Right Location – Within 50 feet of the entrance, in a sight line between the street, or where bicyclists would approach the destination, and the entrance.
- Right Orientation – Place it at least three feet away from all other walls, curbs, obstacles, and other bike racks. Six feet away from trees and fire hydrants.
If you need to hold more than two bicycle racks, there’s rarely a better situation than installing multiple U-racks parallel to each other.
