One of the things we would love to see improved across Washoe County is the number and quality of bike parking infrastructure. We go so far out of our way (in general, as a society) to make it easy to park cars, why don’t we do the same for bikes?
A few of our initiatives related to bike racks:
- Find funding to purchase bike racks and work with cyclists and business owners to get them placed where they will be used.
- Work with businesses and municipalities to upgrade the understanding of what a functional bike rack is. We know that different cyclists have different needs when it comes to bike parking and we want to find a way to make sure the greatest number of cyclists are being served in the greatest number of places.
- Get the word out about the Essentials of Bike Parking.
