APBP Professional Development Webinar

Bicycle Parking Best Practices

Wednesday, April 21 • 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. EDT

Bicycle parking programs are essential for communities striving to encourage bicycling for transportation as well as recreation. Convenient, easily used, and secure bicycle parking encourages people to ride and helps legitimize cycling as a transportation mode by providing parking opportunities equal to motorized modes. Attend this webinar to learn about APBP's recommended practices for bicycle parking.

In this one-hour session, lead author APBP Board Member Eric Anderson will present APBP's newly updated Bicycle Parking Guidelines, 2nd Edition, with special emphasis on two hot topics: in-street bicycle parking and implementing bicycle parking programs. The session will begin with an overview of changes in the new guide and a review of bicycle parking basics. In the second part of the session, Mr. Anderson will discuss the advantages and challenges of in-street bicycle parking (replacing car parking spaces with bicycle parking spaces), including design guidelines and program elements. Examples from several communities will be presented, with details about concept, site selection, community support, design, installation and maintenance. The presentation will conclude with a description of the nuts and bolts of municipal bike parking programs. Drawing on the experiences of cities nationwide, attendees will learn useful strategies for identifying locations, managing construction, and maintaining bicycle parking racks.

This webinar will launch the official publication of the Bicycle Parking Guidelines, 2nd Edition. Each webinar registration will include one complimentary download of the new guide (priced at $20 for APBP members, $45 for non-APBP members). Please read the restrictions on this offer below.

Eric Anderson is a member of the APBP Board of Directors and the lead author of Bicycle Parking Guidelines, 2nd Edition.

He previously served as the Director of Planning for the Marin County Bicycle Coalition where he was involved with the planning and implementation of bicycle and pedestrian projects at the regional, county, and local level as well helping to develop the Nonmotorized Transportation Pilot Program.
