Enforcer Group’s bike racks are suitable for indoor and outdoor use and built to last. They are weatherproof, safe and secure. The absence of designated bike parking can create issues that may discourage cyclists from visiting in the future.
When you are on a bicycle, traveling in a city, you would want stores and public spaces to take care of you and your bike. Cyclists always prefer stores that have bike racks to securely park their cycles while they are shopping. The same goes for public places like parks.
Without a dense network of bicycle racks, you can hardly promote the use of bicycles and reduce the number of cars and motorcycles used in the vicinity. These racks promote environment-friendliness and can make a big difference in how people commute on a daily basis.
Bike Parking Guidelines
Without access to a rack, cyclists may end up using anything that seems somewhat good enough to park their bicycle. These can include fences, railings, street furniture, and even street signs. By building parking spaces you improve road safety and support cyclists encouraging them to use the area more often.
Here are a few things to keep in mind when you are creating spaces for bicycle parking in Australia:

Earlier, bike racks could be bent or deformed, rendering them unusable or making it difficult to lock the bikes on the them. In recent years, security has emerged as an important factor in building bicycle racks. The Australian Standards for bike parking require you to use racks which cannot be bent, cut, broken or tampered with.
