  • San Diego, CaliforniaSan Diegos First Bike Corral to Open May 14Hillcrest is Home to the First Street Parking Spaces for BikesSAN DIEGO, CA (May 11, 2012) San Diego City Councilmember Todd Gloria, bicycle advocates, and local neighbors and business owners will celebrate the completion of the Citys first bike corral at 12:00 p.m. on Monday, May 14 on Fifth Avenue just north of University Avenue.

    The bike corral provides dedicated on-street parking for 12 bicycles in the space normally taken by one parked car. Parking is a known challenge throughout Hillcrest, and providing more parking for bikes will encourage local business patrons to choose bicycle transportation over cars. The Uptown Community Parking District provided funds to complete the bike corral to address the parking shortage. A grant from the San Diego Association of Governments (SANDAG) was also used to fund a large portion of this project.

    The San Diego County Bicycle Coalition and local business owners have advocated for more bike facilities throughout the City. Additional corrals are in the works for other neighborhoods with strong interest in promoting bicycling. The corrals have proven to be a successful addition to bike systems in many other cities across the country from Portland to Pittsburgh.In celebration of the bike corrals completion, Snooze Eatery (3940 Fifth Ave.) will donate 100% of the proceeds from Mondays sales of its bike-themed Pancake of the Day to the San Diego County Bicycle Coalition.

    San Francisco installed its first bike corral in 2005, and in 2010 the program took off in earnest. The circular bike rack is the new standard. A list of the 27 bike corral locations and photos are available on the website: www.sfmta.com/bikeparking Luis Montoya and Ryan Dodge, SFMTA

  • Bend, Oregon

    Bend has one example in downtown outside Thump Coffee on Minnesota Avenue between Bond Street and Lava Road.The rack was installed by the business owner (at his cost) with the citys approval. Photos and text courtesy of Steve Jorgensen, Planning Manager, Bend Park and Recreation District

    In front of the Morning Glory Caf on Willamette Street by the Amtrak Station. We adjusted auto parking spaces to accommodate the corral with no loss of on-street parking.Artistic in-street bike corrals were designed by college students with financial support from the City of Eugene's art program, parking program and transportation planning.

  • Wenatchee, Washington

    Photo and text courtesy of Patrick Walker, Bicycle/Pedestrian Transportation Planner, Wenatchee Valley Transportation CouncilWe just installed our first bike corral in Wenatchee.It is a pilot project and does not have the proper on-road infrastructure (bike lanes, etc.) serving it.It is, however, placed in front of the most popular coffee and live music spots in the city.We didnt have to take a parking space, but utilized a dead zone within the street. We hope to see more of this in the future with the addition of on-street bicycle accommodations for travel.

  • Missoula, Montana

    Augusta Avenue: This a seasonally permanent design (totally removable for plowing season) with 3 car parking spaces replaced with 24 bike parking spaces, from 1 April through 30 November in the Kensington Market neighbourhood of downtown Toronto. We piloted this last year in 2 car parking spots on a street with a nearly exploding demand for bike parking and very limited sidewalk space. It went well so we expanded and made an amendment to the parking by-law. This was achieved with buy-in from the local BIA, the local councillor, and the Parking Authority, and in consultation with adjacent businesses. The neighbourhood is small, very dense and walkable, and has 8 pedestrian Sundays street festivals a year where some of its streets are closed to motor vehicle traffic.

    The Spadina Avenue bike corral is in a parking lay-by adjacent to low-rise office buildings where large numbers of tenants cycle to work. It is also a transit street with a street car right-of-way.This was our first pilot. The number oftraffic delineators may be overkill, but it does make the design more visible.Both here and on Augusta Avenue, the goal was to increasevolume for bike parking while not crowding thesidewalk further,while helping local business draw in customers.Photo courtesy of Jesse Demb, Bicycle Parking Planner, City of Toronto
