Spring is coming! Warmer temperatures promise to bring more and more bicycle riders out of hibernation. Bicycling has become the second most popular outdoor activity in the United States (especially in urban areas). Not only are people more conscious about each dollar spent and getting their daily exercise, they are also more conscious of the footprint they leave on the environment. With the shift towards increased daily exercise, decreasing expenses and Green initiatives, almost all major cities in the Unites States are developing bikeways. The increase in cyclists, in turn, increases every year as does the need for bicycle corrals.
More and more we are finding that cities are developing plans and policies to make bicycling a safe, enjoyable and feasible transportation choice. As a result, Urban Planning policies and regulations are increasingly requiring accommodations for bicycle parking in new and newly remodeled developments.
As equipment planners, we evolve with the ever-changing needs of our clients. Staying abreast of the latest trends and regulations allows us to be on the cutting edge of our industry. By collecting and analyzing data, we are able to suggest pertinent and essential information about bicycle storage equipment and its required maintenance allowing our client to make informed choices, abide by regulations, provide a Green alternative and enhance the cycling experience of those they serve.
