Getting it Right: Location, Security and Management
When planning cycle parking it is important to consider:
Location is extremely important when planning your cycle parking. Users must be able to easily identify where the designated cycle parking zone is and the access must be easy.
Narrow corridors, ramps, steps and lifts will all deter cyclists from utilising the cycle parking.
The idea is to get more people using cycles than other forms of transport and reduce carbon emissions. This will not happen if no thought is given to how people will identify a cycle parking area and easily access it.
