Bicycle parking is a varied and sometimes evocative creature. Some parking solutions neither amaze or anger, but merely merit a “meh.” Though, in the end the utility and necessity of these small structures should not be understated. I began to think a survey of bike parking structures throughout the world would help us continue to create our own identity.
I wanted to gather a host of images documenting the variety, beauty, failure, and banality of bike parking throughout the world. I have also tried to document the growing variety and ubiquity of bike parking in Provo, though we have a long way to go yet. I hope this post inspires the community to see what could be done to further integrate bicycles into our infrastructure and culture.
