If you build it, the cyclists will come
Cyclists everywhere will be familiar with the discussion about where to go that ends with “but they don’t have anywhere to park.” Bike racks may bring a new crowd of people to your park or business that you didn’t realize you were overlooking. If you’re building or renovating your business, bike racks will make it easy for everyone to visit. If you’re adding infrastructure to a college or park, bike racks provide essential convenience and security. As a bonus, your trees, street signs, and benches will be free to serve their intended purposes, rather than functioning as last-resort bike parking spots. Cyclists in your community will appreciate your support of their inexpensive, healthy way to get around.
Bicycling is growing in popularity, both for recreational use and for commuting. Adding parking for cyclists through the use of bike racks is a great way to show that you’re in tune with this growing demographic and that you want them to feel included. It may seem like a small touch, but it will show that you’ve paid attention to even the smallest details. It will also benefit those who drive to your establishment by freeing up some parking spaces. Bike racks are the perfect way to expand your total parking capacity without having to spend a lot of money.

Customers love Premier Polysteel bike racks
“We are so happy with the bike rack that was made for us by Premier Polysteel. It’s so well built and solid. Users don’t have to worry about it tipping over when they park their bikes. When they lock their bikes in, they can be sure they’re not going anywhere! It won’t rust, fall apart, or get bent out of shape like racks of lesser quality. We didn’t have a bike rack before, so we like the fact that having it encourages people to ride their bikes to church and keeps the kid’s bikes off the sidewalk. It’s a fantastic bike rack in every way!” – Sarah, Office Manager, United Methodist Church, Wells, MN
