Bike Parking Design: Building Active + Engaged + Healthy Communities

The times are a-changing, and they’re doing so without the car. Obviously, more people riding bikes means more people parking bikes too. Admittedly, bike parking is not as sexy as bike riding, but there's a real need for quality start/end of trip facilities. Businesses, architects, developers, building managers and City Zoning Codes are rising to the challenge and reaping the economic/environmental/public health benefits. This workshop will explore how they’re building healthier, more connected communities by creating bike parking facilities that are secure, accessible, space efficient, cost saving, and might we even say, sexy.
