I am mapping out all of the public bike parking in Denver… and I need your help!

Good Evening Everyone!

Along with other projects I have been working on over the past 3 months, I am starting to build out a map of places to park and lock bicycles around Denver. Given that I will be fairly busy with otherĀ  writing projects, I NEED YOUR HELP.

If you are interested in participating in this project, be sure to email me here with a picture and location of the bicycle parking you see.

Before you send a picture of the bike racks you see, make sure they are the following:

1. Public, Free and Accessible

Generally has to be in a public place and available for anyone who is riding a bike to park it. I would not consider a private bike locker at an apartment complex or work to be either. The bike lockers at RTD probably fall in the “Not Free/Accessible” category as well because you have to pay for them.

2. Relatively Secure.

I have seen bike parking areas that are held down by a single screw in various parts of town that are fairly unsafe to park a bike with a basic ulock/cable combo because of how structurally unsound they are. Something like that would not be included or included with that qualification.

3. (Generally) made for bicycle parking/locking.

There is some ambiguity here, but locking up to a meter/pole/tree is not something I would consider bike parking. Whatever the structure is, the form must (generally) be built for bike parking, whether it is a rack or something else.

We are back in action everyone!

Good morning all!

After holidays, nightshifts, and so many other life events in the past 2 weeks, I am proud to say my holiday hiatus is over! Be on the lookout for new material shortly, including more content from DenverUrbanism, a long awaited update to The Polybius Diagnosis, and even more original content. Hope you are having a happy now year!
