Bikes Welcome works with councils to implement great bike-parking where it is needed.
Good bike parking supports bikes and supports biking.
It helps make biking visible, normal and encouraged.
We can help
We can help your organisation to identify and prioritise bike parking needs.
We can also help you choose the right kind of bike parking – the type that will be used rather than avoided.
Engage with your bike-users
We assist your residents to let you know where they need bike parking. That way you can avoid spending money in the wrong locations, or on sub-standard parking. Engaging with your bike-using community helps you avoid the expense of mistakes, costly siting studies and customer research.
It is easy and free to list your council on the Bikes Welcome website, and it will help you engage the bike-users and businesses in your community. Check out our examples of current local pages.
Choose good bike parking
We can provide information and resources to help you choose bike parking that will be used and won’t damage bikes.
List your council
Complete our short questionnaire about your bike parking policy and processes.
We will then use that information to create a page for your local area.
Information and Assistance:
The power of suggestion
Seeing a bike parked outside a business encourages people to try taking short local trips by bike.
It nurtures the idea:
“if someone else can, I could too”.
Why Bike Parking?
Normalising bike use
Bike parking helps build social license for biking by normalising it, helping the public see bike-users as people, not ‘cyclists’. That way it will be easier to gain public support for your biking projects.
