Ride New Orleans

34 neighbors want a safe place to park a bike at streetcar stops in New Orleans.

With safe and secure bike parking at streetcar stops, we can ride to the streetcar, leave our bikes, hop on and come back later knowing that our bikes will still be there when we return.

@Elizabeth, I love the idea of the Bike Corrals! Looks like the trend is spreading: www.good.is/post/round-em-up-b...

I wish there was an easy process for businesses to install their own. I had the racks and volunteers to install a few along O.C. Haley Blvd, but I wasn't sure about the permit process to install them on city sidewalks. So we ended up installing them behind the Zeitgeist theatre in a courtyard - not visible to the public at all.

Round Em Up: Bike Corrals Moving Into Streets Nationwide | Portland on GOOD

How often to do you find yourself foraging desperately for bike parking? You've pedaled to your local cafe or to the hardware store or to the bar and you have to scrounge around for some viable place to lock up your wheels. A parking meter perhaps? Maybe there's a free street sign? Or a...

With all the nice new bike routes and bike paths, we now need some places around town to park our bikes.

blog.bicyclecoalition.org/2012... I recently moved back to New Orleans from Philly where car lots have bike parking, I wonder if the city could convince those who have lot contracts to set aside bike parking sections.

I think it would be super-helpful to map out places where secure, covered, and/or lighted bike parking is needed in the City. For example, I would LOVE if the parking lot by Company Burger on Freret had one parking spot that was all bike parking---on a Friday/Saturday, literally every signpost is taken all along Freret with cyclists trying to lock up. Some of our larger restaurants, like Commander's Palace, have lock up space for their employees, but others like Cochon do not, which is huge given how many service workers bike in NOLA. I'm sure we could all come up with (and solicit more public input on) where our bike parking hotspots are.

Neither have funding allocated for bike parking but the City has been incrementally funding bike and shared lanes as streets are repaved

Is bike parking infrastructure part of the City or the RTA's capital budget at all?
