What developers need to know about adding bike parking to their projects

 Bike Requirements per City Code

 The City of Davis Bike Parking Ordinance establishes definitions and standards for bike parking throughout the City of Davis. 

What to Consider when placing a bike rack

  • How much space is available?
  • Can a person walking or in a wheelchair get around a parked bike?
  • Is the bike rack away from the car door zone?
  • Is the bike rack conveniently located near a building entrance? 

The City requests that developers install the following bike racks:

Ground Control Systems

Phone: 1.800.630.7225

undergradUndergrad Bike Rack  The Undergraduate bike rack is a special order rack.  This rack is similar to the SCH Enterprise bike racks.  Davis orders include free shipping as well as a $5 per stall donation to the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame in Davis.  










Varsity Bike Rack

varsity bike rack  The varsity bike rack parks two bikes on one bike rack.  It is recommended that people park bikes back to back to eliminate handlebars tangling.  The varsity rack requires more assembly compared to the Undergrad bike rack.

 Bike Rack Design Guidelines

 All bike racks installed in the City of Davis need to be selected and installed in such a manner that will enhance convenience and maximize security. Listed below are basic parameters that should be adhered to when selecting and purchasing bike racks:

1. Selected bike racks should be designed in such a way that they will guide the wheel, not bind it. "Wheel benders" (racks with vertical slats) or any other similar designs are not acceptable.

2. An acceptable bike rack will have at least two points of contact to support a bike leaning against it (many bikes currently being sold do not come with kickstands, such as expensive road bikes and mountain bikes). Additionally, bike rack designs including moving or stationary parts with the potential for scraping the paint on a bike when parked will not be approved.

3. Bike rack designs must incorporate elements that will allow for the locking of the frame and at least one wheel of a bike with any kind of lock, especially high security "u-locks."
