With the rising cost of fuel and the attention to cutting greenhouse gas emissions, more and more people use their bikes to run errands and shop, supplying convenient bike parking is a smart business decision.
Providing secure bike parking for your customers can potentially increase your business. Cyclist and non-cyclist will appreciate your "green" thinking when it comes to providing secure bike parking. The sheer ease of a quick trip on a bike to your store or facility is sure to gain loyal customers.
Clearly defined bike parking avoids conflict with pedestrians and parked vehicles, helping to keep bikes off of railings and signposts that might otherwise impede normal store access and sidewalk traffic.
Many businesses are reluctant to give up precious car parking spaces outside their front door. But did you know that 14 cyclists can easily park their bikes in the space of one standard car parking stall? How many customers would have fit in that one vehicle that takes up the same space?
Installing on-street bike racks like the Dero Cycle Stall Elite will actually increase foot traffic in front of your business.
