bike parking/racks


We continue to gather input/opinions about location/type of bike parking facilities.

DERO is a Minneapolis-based manufacturer of bike racks, acquired
last year by Chattanooga-based Playcore.  Dero's interesting website
has, among other things, a "World Bike Parking Tour" scrapbook (PDF)
and a guidebook "The Art of Bike Parking".  A profile of DERO is here;

used at U of Minnesota and elsewhere to incentivize/reward bike commuters.
