On-Street Bike Parking = Awesome!

I saw this in Kendall Square, Cambridge, on my commute recently:


What an awesome sight! I've seen similar on-street bike parking in Boston, Somerville, and even suburban Lexington. Why do we think this is so great? Several reasons:

  • It increases the number of bike racks dramatically and quickly

  • It uses existing space (usually a parking space)

  • It's mobile - so installation is simple and relocation is easy

  • It's good business - you get more customers from 15 bikes than 1 car

  • And nothing says "Bikes Matter" more clearly than taking space from cars!

So what do you think about this? Where else have you seen it in Massachusetts?
