An outdoor bicycle rack, also known as a commercial bike rack, is a device to which bicycles may be securely attached. It may be free standing or securely attached to the ground or some stationary object such as a building.

Dear Businesses

Outdoor Bicycle Racks not only are greatly appreciated by patron cyclists, but they show that your organization / business stands for healthy active lifestyles. Not to mention bike parking takes up much less space than car parking, leverage that small lot!

You may want to also consider signing up for the Bicycle Benefits program to reward your patrons for making sustainable choices, as well as keep them coming back.

Installation

See the manufacturer for instructions, as all racks and applications may be different. Typically racks can either be surface mounted with bolts or direct burial.

Also contact your city and tell them you are willing to purchase the rack and donate it to the city if they are willing to install it or better yet put it in the public right-of-way (that space in-between the road and the sidewalk).

Custom Racks

If you want something truly unique, contact some of your local metal artisans and see what custom work they can do.
