Bike Parking

Bike parking is a key part of citywide bike infrastructure. When people know that there will be secure, accessible bike parking at their destination, it's easy to make the choice to go to by bike. Lack of bike parking is cited as one of the top reasons why people don't ride as much as they'd like to, and Bike Anchorage is on a mission to change that.
