Reserved Parking at the Office

15 Aug

I read that a San Francisco supervisor is drafting legislation requiring office buildings to provide indoor, secure bicycle parking for their office workers. Here, here! I’ve been lucky that both my employer and the building maintenance staff have allowed me to park my bike in my office, right beside my desk. I’m pretty sure the building rules don’t permit bicycles inside, but they’re willing to look the other way.


Or maybe they know that providing a rack in the far back corner of the parking lot is not at all secure, and not in line with the city’s guidelines, which I’ve read requires bicycle parking to be as close to the office entrance as the nearest car parking space. I wouldn’t leave my bike here all day, would you?


What kind of parking does your workplace provide for bikes? Does bicycle parking influence whether you ride your bike to work?

    I used to park my bike in my cube @ Schwab. watch out for staples — they cause flats.

    Knock on wood, but I haven’t had any flats on my commute bikes. But I’ll hide my stapler just in case.
