Bike shelters are becoming a popular feature in schools, medical care facilities and many other workplaces. With more people cycling to work and school, it would certainly help for facility owners to make space for cycling shelters in their properties. If you are looking for more reasons to incorporate them, consider this list:
A More Attractive and Relaxed Landscape
Bike sheds make for an organised and less constricted open space. Landscapes will look more attractive and not overcrowded with cars. Any green surroundings will become more visible, and guests can appreciate a more relaxed environment, thanks to a space-saving feature that complements the outdoor environment.
Encouraging Children and Employees to Cycle
Making bike shelters available to guests and users of your facilities will encourage them to adopt cycling. If you are running a school, installing a shed will make young students want to ride during their breaks, and even after their classes. Knowing that this feature is accessible to them will encourage them to use it and have fun in doing so.
Having shelters in your facilities will also give your students’ parents, and your employees, a sense of security. A designated parking space in a secure facility will make them feel confident that their prized bikes are in a safe place.
Prevents Students, Employees and Guests from Riding on a Wet Seat
The weather can be troublesome for those cycling to and from school and work. A sturdy bike shed provides coverage, keeping bikes from becoming wet during rainy days. This way, students, employees and guests are spared from cycling on a wet seat.
