Making a Place for Bicycles

How to create more bike-friendly environments

Fact Sheet
Model Legal Document
Healthy Neighborhoods

When people make bicycling or other physical activity part of their daily routines, they can get physical activity while easily traveling a few miles.

One clear impediment to bicycle use, however, is that most cities lack sufficient safe and convenient bicycle parking. Just as drivers need easy, secure parking, so do bicyclists.

ChangeLab Solutions has developed a model bicycle parking ordinance to help local communities increase the availability and quality of bicycle parking, creating a more bike-friendly environment.

Download our fact sheet for a complete overview, and contact us for help adapting the model ordinance to your community's needs.

For California communities: ChangeLab Solutions has also developed bike parking resources for California.
